sarro (125) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2011
4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at Cascade Barrel House in Portland. Pours a hazy, muddled red with little lacing. Nose is vanilla and sweet cherries. Taste is very tart and you definitely get a powerful bing cherry flavor that lingers. Has a sour bite to it, but not overly offensive and has an enjoyably dry finish. They should really bottle this one.

Dark brownish red with almost no head. All cherry all the time with this beast. Quite good, but will be even better with some carbonation.
