This NW style sour red ale is blend of red ales aged in oak barrels for up to eight months, then aged on fresh Bing and sour pie cherries for an additional eight months. Aromas of rich, dark cherries, oak and slight hints of cinnamon are noticed up front. Dark, tart cherries and light spice notes dance on the palate and lead to a rich, dark, tart sparkling finish of dark cherries and oak.

2021 version. Has been Refridgerated since new.
7.8%.
Just a totally beautiful beer from the deep garnet red colour to the amazing funky/sour nose, to the lovely flavor profile. Sour but so under control.
Great carbonation and great dying mouth feel.
I think age has done this one wonders.

A 750ml corked and caged bottle, 2015 project. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy deep amber red colour with a one finger beige head that dissipated quickly but settled to a thin layer while leaving some nice lacing.

Aroma: Tart, cherries, oak, maybe some mixed berries.

Taste: Sour, tart, cherries, oak and a hint of spices.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice cherry flavours, slightly acidic, but not overly so.
