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.
