#5 Top 25 beers 2018
Return to List

This is a blend of 85% sour ale aged in wine barrels with blackberries and cherries and 15% dark ale aged in Bourbon barrels, resulting in a pleasantly fresh and tart sip that is grounded by an ample malt backbone. A strong vinous character unfolds on the nose, with notes of tart grape, cherry, raspberry and citrus that are partnered with wood-tones of cocoa nib and sweet spice. It's medium in body, though that weight is countered by bright acidity, moderate carbonation and more of those tart berry and plum fruit flavors. The toasted malt and woodspice elements come back on the end to carry the long, slightly astringent and dry finish. Lauren Buzzeo
