COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Track 9′s origins trace back to a few barrels of Cuvee de Tomme that didnít mature in time for the 2011 release. We held these back to let them age a while longer and later opted to add currants to the mix to see what would happen.

Left to natureís devices, the currants married into the raisin and cherry already present in the beer and created a full-bodied fruit intensity we hadnít quite expected. Liking what we tasted, we decided to bump the melange with an addition of Brettanomyces for a little extra oomph. The results are a unique blend that delivers a great combination of plummy fruits, round malts and just enough funk to remind you Brettís in the house and doing her thing.

Bottle pour at home, long story how I got it out of CA. So glad to have this one. Cracked this with Andrew for his bachelor party. Creamy brown carmal pour, very sour aroma and taste, thin cherry taste, so much flavor, absolutely love this beer.

375 mL bottle poured and shared by Tcon. Thanks T! Awesome. Pours a thick reddish brown with a cream foam ring head. Big wood, cherry, and tart aroma and flavor. Huge pucker up front with a mellow out black cherry finish. Exactly my kind of beer. Why canít I get this regularly? Loved it.

Bottle. Itís a lightly hazy light brown beer with a minimal layer of beige bubbles. The aroma is a bit weak, with caramel notes, some nuttyness and lemony hints. Leather and barnyard hints. Some sour berries too. Itís full-bodied and quite nicely carbonated, maybe even too heavy, rather tart and quite warming. Itís lemony, nutty and with a faint funky touch. Sort of sweet in the finish, but still tart and dry. Raisins, alcohol, lemony sourness and some berries and blue plums. Perhaps a bit warm this one, and a bit too much of most things, but itís sure a nice one anyway, growing as you drink. 141220

Bottle shared by brew3crew - thanks again, Jason! Pours a hazy amber color with a medium beige head. Dark fruits abound in this - currants, sour plums, berries - with tannins, bretty funk, oak, caramel, spice, and booze. Medium-bodied, with a funky, sour, warming mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Drinks bigger than some of the double-digit ABV Tracks. Pretty solid offering but not my favorite of the Box.
