Very dark mahogany color. Pretty much a perfect balance of wine and bourbon barrels, with a natural-tasting cherry flavor being led by above-moderate tartness and gentle carbonation, at a perfect level to allow for the enjoyment of juicy cherry, bourbon-y malt, and generally all-around pleasant flavors.

An incredible beer, arguably the standout of our mini-Cascade tasting (though apples-and oranges relative to Framblanc). An incredibly nuanced sour that blended elements of impressive wine and whisky barrel aging with a delicious red-fruit base beer. Tons of dark fruit, from cherry, to blackberry alongside elegantly understated sour.
