Westword Beer Calendar

Black Project Wild & Spontaneous Ales will host a release for the extremely limited Cygnus Montmorency Cherry today at noon. The beer began as Oxcart, a spontaneously fermented beer made using malted barley, unmalted wheat, and oats, then hopped with a blend of young and aged hops. The beer was then aged in oak barrels for one to three years and re-fermented for two months on 2.5 pounds per gallon of Montmorency tart cherries. "The initial aroma is sweet cherry pie with a light effervescence and a tingling sour finish," Black Project says. "The body and mouthfeel is complex, with layers of funk, hay, and acidity. Fruit character dominates the aroma and flavor but may diminish over time, so enjoy please enjoy fresh." Only one hundred 750ml bottles, at $34 each, will be available.
