Pours dark brown into a snifter with a thin tan head. Aroma of cherries, oak, whiskey. Pleasantly tart in the flavor. Taste mirrors the aroma, with a hint of vanilla, I’m assuming from the whiskey barrels. This is one damn delicious beer.

Sample at Decatur Beer Fest. Nice dark sour. Good tartness and high on that spectrum. Little bit of purple fruit to round it out a bit. Good body and light oakiness.

Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage. 3.75 A: Pours a deep plum color. Some yeasties hanging out at the bottom of the glass. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Well, this definitely has some cherries in it. Big, bold, beautiful cherries. Tart and delicious. I’m not detecting much bourbon at this point, but the barrel itself is quite present lending a soft tannic woodiness. Not much funk as this more showcases tartness and sour punches. Nice acetic acidity. Toastiness, mixed berries, sour plum, and a touch of lemon. 3.75 T: This pretty much mirrors the nose. Big, bold cherry. Moderate sour tanginess with plenty of tartness. Lemon, plum, black and blueberries. Toastiness, touch of neutral maltiness. Bit of earthy funk. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness. Super smooth with a tart finish. 4.00 D: Very good beer. Didn’t get much bourbon, but that’s probably a good thing since it didn’t need any other flavors. ★ 1,054 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 15, 2014

KansaiBeerLvrs (5236) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2015
At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. 2012 Sang Noir 9.8% a brown with a dash of red. A rich plum, figs & prunes aroma. Tart, cork, light fruitiness and a raspy dry carbonation. A bit oaky maple woodsy barrel charcter. Alright.

bytemesis (8792) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle, 2011 project thanks to cocoapuph. Pours clear ruby hazel, small tan head, decent lacing. Initial aroma is quite acetic, mellowing somewhat to reveal cherries, roasted malts, lemon, oak tannins, nail polish remover, and sherry. Flavor is medium tart, tartness really comes on late, puckering after a bit. Somewhat roasty, cherry notes, vinous and oaky, some nail polish remover but less than in the nose. Medium body, lingering tartness. Not bad, not great either.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2015
sour cherries, not much head, very dark, red colour, very spritzy, very sour lingering finish, there is an interesting mushroom je ne sais quoi underlying the cherries. really liked it

Ferris (16093) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Lots of red grape and raisin with a touch of vinegar. Cloudy brown with a decent beige head. Acidic, tart red grape with a bit of balsamic. Not bad for the age.

3.8
dfearnley (2247) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle (2011) to taster Some diacetyl, grape, lemon. Dark, translucent red, with a bubbly ringed head. Taste is red grape, acid, tart cherry.

Dégustée chez Alexandre Mathieu. Cheers buddy! La bière est brune, opaque et délaissée de toute mousse. Le nez de cette bière ne m’a pas emballé, contrairement aux autres produits Cascade qui présentent des arômes beaucoup plus près des fruits qui ont servi au brassage. Celle-ci présente en fait un nez acétique, vinaigré, boisé, mince. Je n’aurais jamais pu deviner la présence de cerises. En bouche l’alcool et le bois occupent presque toute la place. On sent que l’acidité n’est pas qu’attribuable au bois mais à une cerise bien jeune mais timide. Finale sèche, cette bière ne figure pas parmi mes préférées de cette dégustation.
