Westbound & Down Metaberry + Vanilla and Cognac
What the brewers say
"Golden sour aged in a single Cognac barrel + raspberries + Madagascar vanilla beans."
What our panel thought
"Assertive, distinctive rustic raspberry nose blends with the vanilla and funk into a seamless whole. Lively body with bright, tart raspberry notes married with tannins and light oak."
What our editors thought
"Earthy vanilla pops the raspberry right out with a note that would be candy-like if it weren’t so deep in tone. Vinous rich red note with touch of vanilla and oak is ultimately endearing."
