750 mL bottle split. 2012 project. Always a treat to pop open a bottle from these guys. Pours a beautiful tinted purple black color with a swirling beige head. Red grapes, cherry, and just a touch of bourbon in the aroma. Probably only noticed the bourbon because I knew it was there. Huge, pucker up sour flavor right up front. Creamy sour fruit body with grapes, black cherries, and berry. Some slight dusty oak flavor as well coming through in the finish. Gives it the perfect aged feel to it, which compliments any great sour. Long, drawn out cherry and grape finish. Just keeps getting better too as I go. What an incredible beer this is, though I expected nothing less from one of the best. The price tag might scare some people off of a beer like this, but they continue to prove to me that it is well worth it. Awesome stuff to say the least.
