Ale infused with a large dose of sour cherries. Fermented in an Oak Vat using a blend of Ale Yeast and Lactobacillus. Then aged in freshly dumped bourbon barrels. Strongly Sour with intense cherry overtones married to oak and bourbon character.

Draft at Malt House. Cherry red, some caramel brown. Patchy off-white head, semi oily. The bourbon and cherry meld together quite well. Sour and vinous, the barrel creates a lot of depth. Quite excelllent. Some creamy, oaky bourbon vanilla tones.

Bottle via kbutler1, Thanks again! Shared on Christmas morning 2011. Pours a dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is bourbon sour with a bit of cherry. Taste is of light bourbon with some cherry and sour. V009 is more extreme but this is so incredible. Great beer.

Bottle. Thanks to Deyholla for this one. It pours an amber reddish color with a small disappearing off white head. The aroma is rich with cherries, light leather, and hints of wood, alcohol, caramel and vanilla. The flavor is big on cherries, almost like cough syrup. There’s also some wood, nuts and bourbon alcohol in the finish. Only mild hints of toasty, leathery funk. The lightness of this beer makes the bourbon flavors a bit harsh. Overall, it was okay but I have yet to have a bourbon aged sour that works really well.

ketchepillar (1181) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle generously shared by CanIHave4Beers. Pours a dirty orange color. Aroma-like a tree. And, sweet cherry and honey. Flavor-the cherry is rockin, but there’s a weird nuttiness mixing in there unpleasantly. Finishes with lots of honey. Too much honey.
