This is one of a series of four sour beers released by Avery this Spring (2015). It is a sour ale aged in bourbon barrels with cherries and vanilla added. The result is a sour beer with what I would call a “medium” pucker factor. In other words it’s not so sour as to make your lips completely pucker up, but it’s also not just a teeny bit sour. The bourbon flavor is noticeable strongly followed by the cherry and the vanilla. There is a noticeable parallel to a Manhattan, which I think is what they were going for. As it warms, it seems a little less sour and the cherry becomes more prominent. A nice choice for a sour beer. Four of five proper pints.
