i needed to tame my initial impression of this fruity sour brew with some thought about my experiences with these types of beers and the challenges that the brewer has inventing them. after a few sips i began to enjoy the genuine black cherry sour and slightly sweet taste with the yeasty and lively light malt finish in a moderate body that cleans everything up and makes you ready for another sip. for what i can tell this is a successful beer especially for the summer... enjoy one !

Golden/peach color. Kind of dig aroma, very intense cherry character. Flavor is mouth puckering combo of sweet and sour cherries. Sweetness becomes overwhelming. Pretty thin on the palate.

Decent light beer for the hot weather. Pours a light hazy yellow with a big head. The aroma is fruity with cherries and malt. Flavor is tart and light. Thin finish and easy to drink. Best ice cold.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Poured a reddish amber color with a beige head. Aroma and flavor were both filled with cherry notes but also had subtle strange notes of V8 juice. Very syrupy mouthfeel. There were tart moments but overall it was way too sweet for my liking. Dry finish.

very sweet, almost syrupy. Very close to a lambic on sweetness. Not for me.

The tired black cherry aroma didn’t bode well with the gentle malts. Too sweet, too thin, too much of a challenge to finish a bottle.

While at Dunderbak’s, I asked the waiter what was on draft for fruit beers and it was this or one other - this was the one I selected. I expected cherries to be present in either the aroma or taste and found it lacking all around. Next time I’ll order the other fruit beer.

12oz bottle pours copper with gold hues and short lived white head. The aroma is very mild with faint berry and malt sweetness. The taste presents sweet malts and sweet dark cherries rounded out initially by a dash of carbonation enhanced tannins. By midway the malts and berryness come to a peak and mingling in modest somewhat restrained harmony. Nice. It gets a tad too sweet into the finish. This beer has limited depth, decent enough flavor and should prove particularly tasty on a hot day.
