COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique brew is reminiscent of cherry pie, using a Midas Touch base and lacto blend with tart cherries to give a sweet and sour flavor complemented with turkish cherrystone spice.

A: The beer pours a pinkish-red color with a small pink tinted head. S: Despite being made with cherries, this seems to have more of a distinct apple pie aroma to this. Sweet fruit with plenty of spices, seems like cinnamon. A light tartness with a really nice cherry and apple aroma. T: Tart and acidic, an almost Granny Smith apple kind of flavor. A bit cidery with a less pronounced apple pie flavor. Plenty of spices and pie flavor. A more obvious cherry character on the palate. M: Light in body with medium carbonation. O: The fruitiness was really wonderful and I liked the spices as well. A well done experiment.

On tap at the Dogfish Head Brewpub in Rehoboth Beach. Served in a 10 oz. snifter with a moderate head and decent carbonation. Delicious sour, lactic mouthfeel with a strong dry cherry flavor. Very decently sour and a stronger fruit flavor than most cherry ales such as Cerise (last time I tried it, anyway). Not sure how available this beer will be away from the brewpub, but getting brews like this one are an excellent reason to make your way to the Delaware beach!

Tap @ BBF:NOTF. Nose is a big ’ol fruit cake explosion - cinnamon, cherry, honey, banana, apple. Flavor follows - lots of spice and an overwhelming cinnamon character with bold caramel.

Pouring at the Night of the Funk in Boston. Pours a lightly hazed ruby orange with a thin white head. Sweet and floral, potpourri, lemon. Very sweet, spices and cinnamon. Malty and sweet, toast and a light soft acid. Mostly sweet cinnamon though as the dominant flavor. Not much acid, light nutty tang with more cinnamon on the finish.
