From a 330ml. Pours reddish-brown with a frothy head. Yeast, cherries, raspberries on the nose and in the glass. Sour cherry and wine-like flavors. This is a delicious, refreshing beer, if a little on the light side of sour

Very dark red in color. Thick, bubbly head with outstanding lacing. Has a mix between fruity and floral aroma. There is some citrusy aromas also. It taste like sweet unripened raspberries. Medium carbonation with a smooth finish. Is this what a sour is suppose to taste like. It reminds me of drinking lemon water. I likey lots. Very easy to drink.

Darker than expected sour. Refreshing is the key word here and this certainly is. On the other hand it tastes like a sourish, carbonated glass of fruit juice rather than a beer or ale. Sour cherries? In any event, this end of the beer spectrum is not one I want to explore any further, except perhaps for an occasional cold one on a hot summer day, which, as it happens, is currently the case.

(draught) clear deep ruby-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of melted butter and hazelnuts, rather metallic and phenolic, with a touch of vinegar, some powdered sugar and acetone. flavour is mostly hazelnuts and roasted malts, with big notes of tart lemon juice, red grapes and yeast slurry. light- to medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Pours amber red with a nice tan head. Head retention is good. Sweet sour, fruity, berry, oak , citrus and malty aroma. Flavors of sweet sour fruit, raspberries/strawberries, slight oak, plum, light pepper, malty and citrus with a nice crisp finish. Definitely a great tasting BA Ale. Looking forward to trying the rest of the Monks Cafe line up.
