COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The past three summers, The Cherry Country has delivered fresh picked montmorency cherries. These tart red beauties were packed into first and second run kentucky bourbon barrels and then filled with Enchanted, our open fermented oud bruin. This fall, we blended select barrels from the program, harmoniously marrying young and mature fruit notes with oak, gentle bourbon, and tart brown ale.

Sarlacc83 (2290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2012
375mL bottle from the brewery. Served in a snifter. A: Brackish brown color with a very, very thin reddish-white lacing. Clings to the glass for a bit before gliding down. N: Deep whiffs of tart cherries, some sweetness of oak and vanilla from the bourbon, and a slight acetic element. However, this one leans more towards the former and less towards the latter. T: Sour oaked beer. The cherries lend the tartness to the beer, and then there’s a depth of oak, bourbon, vanilla, and honey. Some cranberry and some acetone, some dark berries in the very back. M: Medium mouthfeel which contains more than its fair share of carbonation. No alcohol presence and a very pleasing level of sourness. O: A balanced candy of a beer. A complementing mixture of sweet and sour. I would take this over the Dissident or Earthmonk every day of the week. Recommended.

Bacterial (3051) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2016
375 mL bottle courtesy of Prufrockstar - thanks Chris! Dark reddish light brown pour with a nice off white head. Nose has some nice intensity of cherry going on with an underlying sweet malt. Really nice taste, medium sour, lactic with a hint of acetic in the far finish. Complex and delicious.

Chris dug out this bottle; fun to try. Deep red-brown pour. Not a sour aggressive kriek. Rather, tons of oud bruin character with nice cherry elements. Bourbon quite subdued. Tasty.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2016
375. Capped. Thanks, C! Pours a murky reddish dark brown with a loose white head. Bright nose of fresh cut cantaloupe. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Mid-palate shows a nice mix of snack cherries strawberries, and some oak. Noses unexpected but mid-palate is a nice oaky brown with fruit character. Finish shows lots of tiredness

375 mL bottle. Deep amber. A bit of reddish flecks. Deep caramel aroma. Deep cherry. Oak. Taste is strong oak and bitterness. Tart cherry. Bitter. Caramel malt. Medium body. Low carbonation. Heavy malt, oak, and a deep cherry flavor. I expected something fresher, I guess.

Bottle - Vintage 2014 - Tart cherry, touch of vanilla and dark malts with a woody note. Deep brown with no head. Tart, soured malts and some cherry notes. Lots of soured malts and a touch of the bourbon barrel.
