COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Manhattan NW, a NW style sour ale that was, until recently, a secret. It’s a blend of Blond Quad aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels on 150 pounds of sour pie cherries for five months before additionally aging on apricot noyaux for three months. Aromas of cherries, Bourbon, sweet candy and hints of spice are noticed up front. Tart cherry skins and Maraschino cherries on the palate lead to a dance of rich cherry notes that are followed by slight Bourbon sweetness. Much like the process to make fission, the steps involved here are greater than the sum of their parts. What isn’t a secret? At 11.32% ABV, you’re going to need a designated driver

jake65 (3983) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle at RBSG, 2011 vintage. Dark and woody aroma with sweet cherries and some tartness. The sour is mostly prevalent... I think at this age the cherries have faded quite a bit. Still some fruity sweetness, but mostly a sour vibe. Light touches from the bourbon barrel. I?d like to try this again with a more recent vintage.

Amber, bright. Thin head, this has a woody, slightly phenolic accent. Tart. But with some balsamic character, complex and nuanced.

GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 11, 2017
Sample from a 750ml bottle, 2014 9.6%, at True Bearing Alehouse, Xiamen. Pours pinkish gold with a minimal head. Sour aroma with cherry. Can’t really detect any bourbon but after about 14 samples maybe that’s not surprising. Refreshing.
