COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Manhattan NW, a NW style sour ale that was, until recently, a secret. It’s a blend of Blond Quad aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels on 150 pounds of sour pie cherries for five months before additionally aging on apricot noyaux for three months. Aromas of cherries, Bourbon, sweet candy and hints of spice are noticed up front. Tart cherry skins and Maraschino cherries on the palate lead to a dance of rich cherry notes that are followed by slight Bourbon sweetness. Much like the process to make fission, the steps involved here are greater than the sum of their parts. What isn’t a secret? At 11.32% ABV, you’re going to need a designated driver

Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours red/amber. Nose is fresh but you can also smell the sourness, zesty fruits up front and big cherry. Taste is earthy (if this was wine we would be speaking about the terroir) caramel, apricot and huge cherry. Simply superb.

Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Hazy orangy color, small white head. Smell and taste sourness with herbs or spices. Worst combination ever for me I think. Not my thing at all.
