A Brown ale aged in oak barrels with Brettanomyces and NYS sour cherries. This beer is a light refreshing sour ale, with the aroma and cherries and oak. Not as intensely sour as the first release of Barrel Select, but with a clear and distinct sour character. The Cherry flavor is mellow intermingling with the brown ale and wild yeasts.

Editors note: 750ml bottle, and having a label marked C1 that states it was bottled 7/11.
Released in December 2011, 240 bottles.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Light cherry aroma with some oak, grass, and vinegar. A hint of vanilla, some leather, and a touch of yeast. There’s only a mild cherry flavor there. But, quite tart and decently acidic. Light acetic quality, oak, leather, grass, and some mild funk and yeast.

Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a cloudy amber orange with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of light tart cherry with some sweetness and a touch of barrel. Flavor has lightly sour cherries with a bit of oak underlying and just a bit of sweet grains.

Sampled from bottle. Poured a reddish-brown color with a tiny fizzy white head. Light vinegar, mild cherry character, some woody barrel character. Fizzy character breaks up some of the tartness there. Not too bad.

Thanks, Moll. Nose is cherry skin without too much fruit character. Light acidity. Flavor has mild earth and cherry. Pretty plain.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 The beer is hazy and ruby orange colored with a small off white head. The aroma offers funk and cherries, though not as vibrant as the raspberry version. Decent flavor. Nice cherry taste but not as popping as I would prefer. Pretty good.
