Err on the Side of Awesome

Dark and Golden Blended Sour with Cherries

This collaboration with our long-time friends and world-class sour producers, The Rare Barrel, is full of complex and risky adventure. We took a portion of our dark sour, Oscar, blended it with kriek lambic, matured it in our original 17 wine barrels that began our sour program, then blended in our golden sour, Felix, before corking and bottle conditioning for several months.
