COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pulling Nails is our ongoing experiment in the art of blending individual threads of different beers to create one unique, complex, finished beer. Blend #5 showcases our love for fruit refermentations in oak. Threads for Blend #5 include:

Kriek du Fermier - with Balaton Cherries
Coolship Blond (late 2013 brew) - with Montmorency Cherries

The Balaton Cherries add unique baking spices, cherry tannins and dried leather to the vibrant acidity, fresh juice and youthfulness of the Montmorency Cherries. Tons of Brettanomyces influence in this blend and earthy hops lends itself more toward a Belgian profile than our highly tart Missouri Wild Ale approach.

750 mL bottle. Hazy pinkish red body. Smells of cherry pie, spice, and some plastic. Eh. Tastes of a nice cherry flavor up front. Nice fruity sourness. Oak. A little plastic and rubber in the back end. Kinda ruins it. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not Side Projectís best.

Enjoyed at a tasting at Brianís house on February 08. 750 mL bottle, Blend #5. The pour is a nice medium pink color with a thin head of light pink itself and no lace as it dissipates, with haste. The aroma is really funky right up front. Christ. There is a good crisp cherry sourness happening, but itís lighter than I would like to see it. There is a lot of funk, some barnyard, and a light horse blanket on this one. Itís got a little bit of a sweet fruit on the back end that I wasnít expecting. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light, tart cherry up front, with a hint of oak and a lingering funk that just doesnít quit. A little horse blanket makes its way in from the back end and creeps over. This isnít as tart or sour as I would like to see, but itís still good. The mouth feel is lighter and crisp with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly funky cherry on the back end. I would like this to be more tart and sour, with less funk, but itís a good beer nonetheless.
