Tasted this twice at the brewery. First time was earlier in May, second time was this past weekend. I wasn’t overly impressed with this beer the first time I tried it, but I really enjoyed it the second time. I thought the sourness was more pronounced the second time a I tried it. Perhaps it was because I had a full pour and it was hot outside. Taste was slightly sour and lactic. The cherry really came through. This is a really nice session beer for a warm spring day.

Tap at Alewife, Baltimore - this is a Berliner Weisse with cherries, so it should probably be listed as a Berliner - when taken as a fruit Berliner, this scores fairly high marks for me - the approach is all Berliner - moderate lactic tanginess - refreshing, light body - the cherry comes on strong through the middle first the earthy, mildly bitter notes of the peels and pits - then, the moderate sweetness of the meat of the fruit - lactic tartness returns in the finish, which is light and quenching - a solid fruit Berliner.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Draft at Craft. Poured dark straw with off-pinkish head. Nose was earthy and tart cherry. Tasted or earthy lactic tart cherry, with a bit more emerging sweetness as it warmed, and a rich palate. This one was much better than I had hoped.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2012
On tap at Rattle N Hum prior to going to The Gate for a Carton event. Pours a hazed brown amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Cherry on the nose, medicinal, smells of cough drops. Medium bodied, sweet, cherry cough syrup. Malt, odd acid, grain. Dries out and gets a bit grainy. Lots of tart acid, drinks pretty well in spite of the shortcomings. Grainy cherries on the finish.
