According to Central Waters:
Exodus is a sour ale aged in oak barrels with the addition of Door County cherries. Following additions of brettanomyces, lactobacillus and pediococcus during the 1 year aging process, Exodus is bottle conditioned and a prime candidate for cellaring. Store bottles upright in a cool dark environment. When pairing cheese or meat with Exodus look for earthy flavors such camembert, fontina, sharp, blue, and cheddar to compliment this beer. Grilled meats are also a nice addition when accompanying this fine ale. It has a serving temperature at 45°-50° f
I say: Exodus is lightly carbonated, leaving a thin head that quickly dissipates. It pours a nice copper color with a white head. It has a strong sour cherry scent and has a nice sweet, sour cherry flavor with very mellow oak undertones. It is lightly bodied, although it has an almost syrupy linger. Potentially a higher level of carbonation would help.
I would love to age a bottle of this if only I can still find one somewhere.
This is a good sour beer that should only get better as it ages. Hopefully someone out there will be able to taste a bottle after cellaring it for at least a year.On a side note, should I change my reviews to more closely resembly the numeric reviews found on Beeradvocate, or keep doing what I am doing?
