Slight haze, dark brown w/ some ruby tones. Smelled a bit acidic with some woody/whiskey bits. Taste was excellent! Thought the beer was nicely balanced, tart with vanilla, wood, whiskey, cherry and some sweet flavor I couldn't really describe. Like mentioned, this beer has an amazingly clean finish and nothing tasting off. Overall, might be my favorite LOVE so far.

Really love these flavored whisky barrel aged sours from NB (the blackberry one is incredible), and this one hits all the right notes, subtle in a sense as a sour blonde, but with unmistakable cherry notes, pleasing tartness, and excellent hints of oak. NB just crushes these sours, and I hope that with some of their expansion projects they continue to send these out into the market.

Subtle, nuanced, brilliant effervescence with an undertone of cherry and tartness. Extremely clean finish. Just a balanced beer from nose to finish. Drink this first, make sure your palate is very clear to pick up the bright, layered flavors.
