  • Pours clear which needs to be seen while holding up to the light. Foam head is tan, not lasting long. Retention is fleeting with lacing that is thick around the liquid level.

    Aroma is tart with sour cherries adding. Leather and sweetness are very mildly competing while complicating.

    Taste is sweet at first, quickly giving way to tart which is joined by earthiness and some light barnyard flavors. Cherry doesn't really shine much here but doesn't need too.

    Heavy end of light body but possibly crossing over into light-medium. Carbonation is medium while drying on the tongue.

    Definitely a ballad to tartness. Tasty and easy to drink, a pleasant representation. Enjoy!
