Tap at Stone Berlin. Pours dark yellow and hazy with a small creamy white head. Fruity nose, with a nice cherry note, some citrus and a light caramel touch. Bitter sweet taste, that is well balanced with a more sweet start and nice bitter finish. Thick body with medium carbonation, smooth and creamy mouthfeel and a light warmth. Fruity flavor with cherry and citrus as well as malty, caramel and toffee notes. Leaves a light bitter aftertaste.
