COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Manhattan NW, a NW style sour ale that was, until recently, a secret. Its 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 isnt a secret? At 11.32% ABV, youre going to need a designated driver

Leighton (19878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle shared at The Kernel, London - many thanks to Paul U. Pours hazy grapefruit pink with a foamy, white head. The nose has dry and funky berries, some cherries. Light to medium sweet flavor, mildly acetic, some cherry pit bitterness, light sour burn, tangy berries. Medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Dry and tangy to finish with more vibrant cherries now. Juicy, lightly jammy. Really good. I found it more drinkable than some of Cascades other beastly sours.
