Cask@Steamworks Brewery Brewpub, Vancouver. Dark brown beer with a lightly fruity and musty aroma. The flavour is bitter and warming. Overall a very average beer where you struggle to taste the fruit.

Lots of fruit in the nose, but not nearly as sour as I was expecting. Slightly medicinal but not sweet or syrupy, just really nice fruit. Soft on the palateand has the slightest bit of sour on the tail. This would be great if it was bigger, barrel aged for about 3 years with some brett added.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 I don’t make it down to the brewpub often enough to get in on the sour cherry every year but when I have had it, I found it surprisingly delicious, with a lovely color and surprisingly assertive tartness. Sure, it’s not the world’s best cherry beer but I wish more BC brewpubs would make interesting beer. I’m tired of the array of crap on tap.

Amber with hints of red. Light head and some stringy lace. Slight hint of cherries in the nose along with some bitterness. Malty and a touch sour. Some more of the cherry comes out, though it’s not too profound. Bitter at the end with a smidge of cherries.

Ruby color, thin white head fades to nothing very quickly.Acetic cherry nose.
Tart and vinegary taste, very light cherry flavor,bordering on the edge of just being vinegar. Poor effort

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tart cherries with plenty of underlying sweetness and strong spices (clove, cinnamon) in the aroma. Clear amber body is topped by a low but lasting, fine bubbled, off white head that leaves some lace as it eventually recedes to partial cover. Spicy cinnamon and cloves are joined by light banana esters that complement the tart cherries. Sweetness builds throughout but stops short of cloying. Alcohol notable in the aftertaste. Medium body is quite dry with lively effervescence and some alcohol warming. Sampled on tap at the brewpub while watching the snow fall!

Cloudy amber colour, i found that the aroma was fairly strong, but i could not tell exactly what it was, there was cherry, but also something almost smokey. The taste however i found to be very cherry with what felt like a hint of spice. A little cough syrupy almost in flavour.

Cloudy amber colour with really thin off white head. Mild cherry nose with spice overtones (bartender said no spices added bur could come from the cherry pits left in the fermentation tanks). sour cherry taste with dry spicy finish.
