mcberko (16595) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2013
12 oz. bottle, sent from Alen (thanks man), pours an opaque dark cherry red with almost no head. Aroma of potent sour cherries, moderate red wine barrels, a bit of wild yeast and some oak. Flavour is intensely sour, with heaps of extremely sour cherries, a significant wild yeast component, dry red wine, and finishing on vinous, oaky notes. Puckering sourness all the way through with a remarkable complexity. The sour cherries are more noticeable on the nose, at least with regard to the fruitiness - they are just puckeringly sour on the tongue. All in all, another great rendition of the BA series.
