4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from tap and growlers. Pours a reddish, clear light brown much like cherry juice. Thin head with fine carbonation and thin white lacing. Aroma is dominated by deep smokiness and a touch of sweet malts and candied cherry. Taste is more balanced than the nose and includes sour cherry and grape skin with a lingering smoky finish.
Light to medium bodied and slightly syrupy finish. Very nice smoked sour.
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a bright pink-red color with a large foamy pink-white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was strong wood smoke and an underlying sweetish fruit. The flavor was strong wood smoke followed by sweetish maraschino cherries. Long tangy cherry and smoke finish. Medium body. Interesting. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Slightly hazy dark cherry body with a minimal wispy beige head. The nose is amazing, smoky and fruity with a great sour cherry note, light caramel sweetness, and a touch of acetic acid. The flavor is pretty nice as well, plenty of smoke, bright sour cherry, a little lingering vinegar tartness. Under all of it a sweet and sturdy caramel malt base. A little bit of a Cheerios like cereal grain note on the back end as well. Medium bodied with a bit of sticky cling and minimal carbonation. Good stuff.
