COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well hopped and malty with a gorgeous copper red color, our Imperial Sour Cherry Altbier is a balanced, full-bodied and crisp ode to the “Old Style” German classic. We then introduce New England grown sour cherries to our fermenting wort to impart a slightly sour and fruity flavor that blends perfectly for an Imperial brew unlike any you’ll try. It’s a refreshingly easy sipper for any time of year.

Hazy straw pour with white head. Nose was nutty brown malt, cherries. Tasted rich, pretty smooth, with the cherry flavor complementing the earthy, nutty, brown malts.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2017 Tasting. Pours a reddish copper with an off-white head. Aroma is cherry and some caramel. Taste is malty; cherry accentuated by a lot of caramel. Tartness/sourness doesn’t really come through, instead the beer is fairly sweet. More in line with what you’d expect from a strong altbier, although it has less of an alcohol bite than one would expect. Medium body. Average carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Fairly simplistic in terms of taste, but well executed and highly drinkable for its alcohol content.
