Sampled on tap at FoBAB 2011. I somehow missed this one when it was in the pub, so I was looking forward to sampling it here. Reddish brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of tart cherries, nice pinot notes. Grapes, some caramel and oak. Quite incredible, actually. Flavor is tart, slick, some nice wine barrel notes. Nice tart cherries, some sweetness from the base beer but the treatment is the real star here. Great beer.

draft at fobab... my first foray into a Three Floyd’s sour, with the new releases at XV I’m very excited to try them if Kinder is any indication... this beer was excellent, the cherries were tart with a bit of sweetness and the pinot barrels SHINED to provide a great mouthfeel and light sour tart finish
