Reviewing Exodus, an intentionally soured red ale aged in bourbon barrels with cherries from Central Waters Brewing Company out of Amherst, Wisconsin.

Score: 94

Fall 2011 vintage bottle served in a Goose Island Chicago flag snifter and enjoyed on 07/01/14.

Appearance: Pours a murky, reddish-orange color with a slight brownish tinge with a half finger of head that settles to a thick ring around the glass. The last pour is quite sediment-y. Nothing special in the lacing/retention/lacing department, but this is a sour ale. 3.75/5

Smell: Cherry, lacto, vanilla and oak working in a nice harmony. Relative to how this was fresh, the acidity has softened a bit and the cherry has faded a bit in a good way such that the medicinal character that was once there fresh is now gone. A kiss of lemon too. 4.25/5

Taste: Tart cherry, oak and a kiss of lacto on the finish. Has a well-rounded acidity. Tart cherry throughout. Really pleasant balance here. No medicinal character anymore. A little residual sweetness on the back half. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Dry finish. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation. Has a nice sourness with an underlying/balancing residual sweetness. 4.5/5

Overall: Excellent, early sour project from Central Waters that has aged marvelously. Recent batches on tap have been even better than this was fresh.

Cost: $14.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
