  • Color: Medium Amber
  • Pours a cloudy medium amber color with a one inch white head. The head settles out fairly quickly leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top.

    The aroma is mostly tart cherries with a bit of sweetness mixed with a bready scent. The aroma is a little bit odd to me. The sour tartness mixed with yeast and bread is a bit pungent.

    The flavor is similar to the aroma with a big tart cherry flavor that is blended with a bready malt. A bit of spice is noticeable on the finish and in the aftertaste. A sour tartness in the after taste.

    Light body with a higher level of carbonation. The mouthfeel is watery, but the carbonation is champagne like and tickles the tongue.

    Overall this is an ok fruit beer. Not bad, but the aroma is very distracting for me and the mouthfeel is a little bit off. I do like the sour tart flavors that this beer offers. Give one a try and decide for yourself.
