Fantastic beer! Pours a dark red/brownish color and smells like wine, tart fruit, slight booze, wine, and oak. Taste is tart apple, slight oak and winey as well. Nice champagne like carb. Overall phenomenal and I will definitely have again

Smell and taste sourish, red fruits, sour cherries or sour red berries, sharp sourness, wooden barrel. Medium dry finish, medium body, medium carbonation.

Gift from bmmillsy. Brown, amber, mahogany. Thin lacing. Butterscotch, fruity (apple, cherry, pear), sour, bread. Delectable. This sour has tremendous favor, much of which has barrel notes; oak, tart cherry, tart grape cab sav. 10% abv. Unbelievable. I’d like to have a palate of these

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 9/14/12. Pours a deeper copper, some maroon hues with a small fizzy head that fades quick into a ring around the glass with a nice amount of carbonation constantly racing up the sides of the glass. Aromas very vinous, musty, some dark fruit and light breads. Taste is loaded with barrel character from the Cab Sauvignon, oak, some tart apple, light plum. Keeps a very lively mouthfeel. Flavors culminate in a crisp, dry finish. On the higher end of the tart/sour spectrum, but enough character to withstand the alcohol content (very well-hidden) and keep it drinkable. Excellent beer.
