Notes / Commercial Description:
Pulling Nails is an ongoing experiment in the art of blending to create sour and wild ales of extraordinary depth, complexity and balance.

Blend #5 is the union of two beers that were fermented in and aged in wine barrels for more than a year and blended to exemplify our love of Brettanomyces and the spontaneous beers of Belgium. This blend was aged on tart cherries for almost a year before being naturally conditioned in this bottle.

Fair bit of cherry skin. Moderate acetic acid. Light oak. A bit of grainy sweetness. Lemon and touch of leather. Medium body, good carbonation. Tart cherry skin on the finish, but nothing quite like a kriek- it is more of a faint cherry. Slightly tannic finish.

Pours a fizzy red hued amber. Look away for a moment and the head is gone and no lacing. Does not look the greatest. Aromas of barnyard funk of the Brettanomyces and faint hint of cherries. Things pick up a lot in the flavor. Flavors of cherries, oak, vanilla, grapes, funky cheese, and complimented by a moderate tartness. No sign of the 8% ABV. Even though this is a higher alcohol sour, it drinks very nicely thanks to the lively carbonation. Not the best SP beer but still very good.

750 mL bottle. Hazy pinkish red body. Smells of cherry pie, spice, and some plastic. Eh. Tastes of a nice cherry flavor up front. Nice fruity sourness. Oak. A little plastic and rubber in the back end. Kinda ruins it. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not Side Project's best.
