Notes: Cerise Cassée is a complex beer in both process and palate. Multiple fermentations begin in stainless steel with our house ale yeast, then spontaneous refermentation and aging along with 300 pounds of sour cherries takes place in the infamous CBC barrel cellar.

4.49/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Arrives the color of a bold Cabernet with a one finger head; spotty lacing

Smell: Dark cherry, raisin and caramel

Taste: Dark cherry forward, bringing both sweet and lactic sour notes; the caramel tones underneath hold together with the fruit; oaky and tannic, after the swallow and into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A brash wild ale with a strong vinous aspect

EBF sample pour. Poured a reddish color. Aroma and flavor were riddled with pungent cherry. Both sour and sweet cherry. Also, both were quite intense. Some earthiness and alcohol head as well. Its ripe and jammy but also tart and acidic. A pretty big sour in both ABV & body. Enjoyable beer.

Pours dark garnet. No light shines through. No bubbles and no lace.

Sour cherry aroma--attractive.

I taste raisins behind the sour base, less cherry. Thick body with a very low carbonation. The aftertaste was lip puckeringly sour with a touch of sweetness.
