COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Andrea is the third and final release (Concepcíon was the first release; Prieta the second) in Snipes Mountain’s 15th Anniversary series of blended dark sour ales coming from their barrel program of Bourbon, Bordeaux and Port barrel aged sours, some dating back to 2008.

Pours black with an off white head. Smell smokey licorice and slight tart notes. Taste sour red fruit, sour apple, citrus. Easy drinking and spritzy. Solid beer.

On tap at Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2013. Deep, dark brown pour with a very small head. Cherry lambic and deep red wine on the nose -- nice and tart. The flavor moves through waves. Tart, juicy fruit right up front -- peaches and raspberries, with some dry, fresh oak behind. Then the sweeter notes begin to come trough -- caramel and sweet roasted malts -- and it finishes with a smack of wood, port wine, and leather. A nice, softly puckering tartness all the way through, with plenty of wood. This is *quite* delicious!

Tap at Fiddler’s. Dark, reddish-brown pour with a minimal off-white head leaving minimal lace. Nose is sour and spicy. Medium body with low levels of fine carbonation. Green apple, tart cherries, cinnamon and a bit of Brett funk. The wine and bourbon aromas are present but take a back seat to the main beer, as it should be. They contribute some vanilla and grape character. The woody umami that enters in the middle and last through the finish seems to bring the flavors together. A fantastic blend of some of the best aged sours coming from Snipes. I didn’t think it was possible to improve on the original Quinceanera blend, but the Andrea does.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 Serving: from tap at Beer Junction. Aroma: apple, cherry and cask wood. Appearance: small, off-white initial head with no lacing or longevity. Dark brown body. Taste: sour, apple, cherry, initial flavor with hint of cask wood. Similar finish with average duration. Palate: light body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: Absolutely outstanding! This beer was so good that I wrote to the brewer and asked if it is available in bottles. Unfortunately it isn’t. Get down to Beer Junction in West Seattle and try it while it lasts!
