Notes: Sour Quad is a sour strong ale aged in Pinot and Sherry casks. This sour ale features a nose of Brett with a mix of complex yeast driven fruit aromas of apricot, blueberry, cherry, and peach. Its big malty sweetness and fruit notes balance the wood character and tartness from the barrel aging process.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear crimson with a mild ring of head around the glass. Smell is complex: spiced wine, berries, fruit and maybe a hint of vinegar. Taste is a sweet and sour blend spiked by strong assertive peppery notes on the finish. This makes the mouth feel quite interesting - the carbonation is milder but very much accentuates the changing sensations as the spiciness finishes put the taste. Really intriguing and wish I had bought a few more.

This beer is pretty nuts and basically everything on the label describes it well. It is sour at first, followed by a nice mellow sherry presence, then on to a sugary quad finish. Have another bottle that we will probably wait until next year to open, curious to how all of these flavors meld together. Alcohol is hidden well, very drinkable now and should get better.

Rich mohagany and amber, thin head which dissipates quickly. Very clear, bit of haze from the bottom of the bottle. Sweet and tart nose, mild earthy undertones, lemon - dates - pomegranate. Smooth on the palate, robust body with very clean bitterness. Well crafted, delicious ale
