Apricot and Noyeaux combine to start this beer out with sweet, tart fruit aromatics reminiscent of the yellow and orange cereal loops. Razberry Wheat and Frite Galois join in to set the deep fruit base with the taste of the red flavor. Finally, Sang Noir was added to the center of the glass to bring in the purple and complete the “früit loop.” Lest you worry it may sound too sweet, don’t fret – most of the sweetness is found in the nose. The beer itself has only a hint of sweet that blends perfectly with the sour that we’re known for.

draft. luminous maraschino cherry colored body, unfiltered, small white head. esters contribute to the already heavy fruit character, giving it a mostly pleasant sweet fruit cocktail / pear / bing cherry nose with mild to medium acid (lactic). medium to light oak. medium to light body, soft carbonation but prickly, disjointed vinegar acidity, a common trait among cascade brewing sours. tingling, drying finish of yogurt and fruit cocktail / maraschino cherries. I understand it’s a kitchen sink beer, and without wanting to appear to critical here’s my last four words: it tastes like it.
