What the brewers say

“A barrel-aged American sour that is blended with 1.5 pounds per gallon of boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cherries and aged in Oloroso sherry casks and then blended onto another 1.5 pounds per gallon of these dark fruits in stainless-steel tanks.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Deep, rich pie-cherry, with grapey, wine-like complexity and brightness of other berries dancing on top, like boysenberry syrup. Nutty notes with chocolate malt, which gives it a complexity you’d find in a cherry imperial stout. Tannins reminiscent of maple wood.”

Flavor: “Dark cherry and blackberry are at the forefront along with blueberry and currant. Wine-like esters accent the tartness and tannins, and the toasted richness suggests a darker base beer. Strong nuttiness, with some earthy complexity. A touch of alcohol warmth and phenol qualities.”

Overall: “So much complexity and intense fruit here, and the base beer supports the fruit medley well. It’s an interesting underlying complexity that’s hard to pin down, but it’s very tasty. Unique wood qualities work very well.”
