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

Rating #2207 – 2015.12.01 - #CraftBeerFantasyLeague Battle: Barrel-Aged Beauties – finished 6th of 9 entries. Pours a clear golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is cherry, bourbon vanilla, spice, mild funk. Medium-high carbonation, medium alcohol warmth, decent body. Palate holds more barrel character, with loads of oaky character and sweet Cherry notes. Lovely.

Pours a clear pinkish red with a thin white ring. Nice sharp, crisp, tart fruity aroma. Taste is just like it smells. Nice full mouth feel and surprisingly smooth finish for how tart it is and how high the ABV is. Especially enjoyable.
