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 (1072) - 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.
