2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap @ the Mayor in FoCo. Cloudy, reddish orange appearance with an off white head. Conflicting cherry juice, citrus hoppy nose. Juicy juice cherry, bitter, soapy hoppy flavor. Soapy, bitter aftertaste. Good call on the Mayor scoring a limited beer. Bad call on Asher for the poor brew. Kriek IPA just sounds fucked up.

Tap at brewery. Wheat ale with "Whole Foods" cherry juice and aged in local Cabarnet barrels. Orange and a bit hazy appearance with a small off white head. Cherry juice and some wheat malts in the nose. A little watery cherry juice flavored wheat beer. Crap. Not a sour. More of a crappy flavored Wheat Ale. Very watery. Crap.

Pours a hazy purple/red. Smells sweet and sourish. Tastes crisp, mellow, and relatively sour with strawberry and watermelon notes. Relatively thin and the sour flavor seems somewhat forced.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Freshcraft - hazy purplish red beer - the nose is actually rather earthy and pleasant, with moderate oakiness, a touch of vanilla, cherry skin and pit, faint funkiness - the flavor is a bit watery, tasting a bit like a watered down lambic - quite a bit of oak and a flavor not unlike semi-sour cranberry juice - mild earthy, leathery funk - moderate acidity combines with the rather strong oak to occasionally unpleasant effect - lingering acidity and sour cherry finish - meh.
