4.1/5 rDev -4.9%
A-light to medium red color with a smallish off-white head and little lacing
S-light grain, light brown sugar, huge cherry nose with no significant tartness
T-big cherry flavor with mostly sweet and hint of sour cherry flavor, light grain and brown sugar in the background, like a fresh homemade cherry pie
F-medium body with light to moderate, carbonation, smooth
O-interesting beer, great cherry flavor, they call this a wild ale, but fruit beer seems to fit this better

A - Not much more than a fingers worth of late to develop light khaki colored froth head... Minimal retention as this one quickly fades away leaving a lopsided splotchy veil lace and an ultra thin collar... The color is a mix of ruby red and medium brown... Mostly still with just a stray carbonation bubble rising randomly on occasion... A wee bit of lacing clings to the glass...
S - Bright vibrant bing cherries... A whiff of vanilla nicely accents the cherries... There is a bit of brown sugar as well... This all sits atop a surprisingly thick malt base comprised of biscuit and pie crust... Very nice...
T - Sweet cherries and vanilla... Vanilla and sweet cherries... A hint of brown sugar... The pie crust and biscuit are present as well... The cherriness continues to intensify on the finish at which time there is a very light tart and salty presence that emerges as well... Excellent depth and complexity...
M - Medium bodied... Light yet robust... Limited carbonation... A bit sticky... Smooth... A wee bit chewy...
D - Insanely quaffable... An outstanding dessert beer with several port like qualities... This growler will disappear with ease... It's amazing to consider that a tiny little brew pub in central PA turns out such outstanding Belgian fruit beers... Outstanding and highly recommended... Much more than the sum of its outstanding parts...
