Light pink/plum colored pour with a foamy ivory head. Tart cherry, lemon zest and some medicinal/aspirin-like qualities. Not a lot of depth and some off flavors. One dimensional...and not wowed by the dimension I’m consuming. Meh.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the share. Cheers, John! Pours a clear amber with red highlights and a white head. Nose is sweet malt, light cherry, and a hint of alcohol that almost comes off as bleach. Flavor is similar- lots of tart cherry and some sweet malt in this one. Medium in body and lingering tart cherries in the finish.

750ml bottle. Rating #42. Dark rose color, clear with a light pink head. Light fruity aroma, sweet and sour cherries. Sour bite right up front, more cherries and a little sweetness in the finish. Not bad. (2404)

Clear amber pour reddish tint thin white/pink head decent carbonation .... aroma is light and of bitter and tart cherries ... taste is of dry sour cherries, light bitter and tart ... not much else to it light flavors finishes dry and tart ... bittersweet brew easy to drink just lacks flavor .... Should have saved the $17 bucks

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours pinkish hue, with minimal head and as bubbly as champagne. The aroma is nothing special. When it hit my palate it tasted like a wine spritzer or flavored carbonated water, followed by an unpleasant sour musk aftertaste that made it extremely difficult to finish and ruined my tastebuds for hours. The best thing about the beer was the bottle it came in, which I was excited to add to my bottle collection above my kitchen cabinets. However,after tasting this beer I never want a reminder so I threw it out. Do yourself a favor and save the twelve bucks!

Pleasant tart cherry nose with a touch of estery belgian yeast, a little grain, and light sour. Pours golden, nice head and lace. The flavor has notes of tart cherries, light belgian yeast esters a bit of grain, bread, moderately sour. Pleasant with good carbonation and solid drinkability.

pours a clear amber with mild red hues...medium white head. aroma is lightly sweet with mild cherry. flavor has nice tart cherries without the sweetness. mouthfeel is light with a dry and crisp cherry finish. this is good but lacks the complexity of some krieks, cherry sours, and fruit beers ive tasted.

750ml bottle poured into a Tripel Karmaliet glass. Recent entry for a sour. Kind of middle of the road.

One of the most interesting looking beers I’ve ever seen...like some purple dye was mixed in to a cloudy blonde. Tart and cherry, though a bit heavier than you might like for the style, it’s not bad, and very drinkable. I also like the low abv. Would go well as a dessert beer. If you have a friend who wants to try a sour but is nervous about it, this more mild example might be a good idea.
