Thanks to Tom P for sharing.

Cloudy dark orange brown beer, very little head.

Nose brings tart cherry, sour brown malts, little acidic bite even in the nose.

Taste nice tart cherry, little sweetness, flemmy little creamy, nice sourness, bit of a brown malt and sweet candy, but sour cherry. Long flemmy tart finish with lingering cherry.

Mouth is med bod flemmy mild acidic bite, decent carb.

A. Reddish brown. No head and only a ring of foam is present. No lacing.

S. Tart cherries. Oak. Smells better as it warms.

T. Tart cherries and oak. Not overly sour or complex.

M. Semi dry finish. Medium high carbonation.

O. A good Flanders though a bit one dimensional and over carbonated for the style.

Reviewing Exodus, an intentionally soured red ale aged in bourbon barrels with cherries from Central Waters Brewing Company out of Amherst, Wisconsin.

Score: 94

Fall 2011 vintage bottle served in a Goose Island Chicago flag snifter and enjoyed on 07/01/14.

Appearance: Pours a murky, reddish-orange color with a slight brownish tinge with a half finger of head that settles to a thick ring around the glass. The last pour is quite sediment-y. Nothing special in the lacing/retention/lacing department, but this is a sour ale. 3.75/5

Smell: Cherry, lacto, vanilla and oak working in a nice harmony. Relative to how this was fresh, the acidity has softened a bit and the cherry has faded a bit in a good way such that the medicinal character that was once there fresh is now gone. A kiss of lemon too. 4.25/5

Taste: Tart cherry, oak and a kiss of lacto on the finish. Has a well-rounded acidity. Tart cherry throughout. Really pleasant balance here. No medicinal character anymore. A little residual sweetness on the back half. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Dry finish. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation. Has a nice sourness with an underlying/balancing residual sweetness. 4.5/5

Overall: Excellent, early sour project from Central Waters that has aged marvelously. Recent batches on tap have been even better than this was fresh.

Cost: $14.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
