Upon entering the pearly gates and making myself at home, just after I wake up and saunter to the kitchen for breakfast, I imagine this is what Miranda Kerr would be juicing me. A bouquet of super dark fruit and red wine for days, are met by a perfect lip puckering punch. Does Raul say hallelujah for Sang Noir? I think he does.

Good God. I'm not even a big sour drinker but every time I put Cascade in my face I'm filled with joy. Had this minutes before A Cantillon Kriek. No contest, this wins.

Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a very thin carbonated head that goes away almost instantly. There is no head retention or lacing. Big sour aroma with wine and a lot of dark fruits. Big sour taste. Wine, raisins, plums. Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

This was a huge beer, it was incredibly thick and heavy on the palate, which is why I knocked a few points off the feel, as it was way too heavy for a sour. That said, it was well executed. You can taste all of the elements involved. The spiced red ale base blends together well with the bourbon and wine barrels. The sour bite comes on strong with the finish.

Not a sour guy
Bomber $27
Pours dark red little head, fizzy
Smells fruity
Tastes of wine, wood, and sour cherries, not getting the bourbon.
The sour is in the fruit which is good.
Thin mouthfeel.
Overall a very enjoyable sour and well put together.
