COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg,series
All revved up and ready to go, Blitz Cherry is the latest in our series of Berlinerweisse fruit beers. Itís taking it easy in terms of strength at a modest 2.1% ABV, but the 200kg of sour cherries will shoot you in the back. It has a real sour cherry kick, and is an incredible shade of red. Itís a complex tongue twisting beer, especially given the low ABV. Every Blitz we brew is different, due to the spontaneous souring process, and this particular version has a great blend of all the different flavours we look for in a Berlinerwiesse, and an effervescent champagne mouthfeel.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Draught @ OíHara?s, Tampere. Pours a dark ruby red colour with a small head. Aroma of cherries, gooseberry bush and some wood. Flavour of rich tart cherry pie notes, cherry tree, mild toffee notes and herbs. Nice acidity as well. Light bodied. Nice sharp acidic finish with cherry tartness. Refreshing and simple. Yeah itís mild, but it works very well here.

spacecube (835) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Keg at BD Leeds. Pours dark cherry red. Aroma is tart cherry flavours, sour yet a little sweet. Body is full. Didnít mind it, tasted pretty good, but the style is not really for me. My girlfriend might like it though.
