4.33/5 rDev +23.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5
Poured a clear dark ruby color. No head or lacing or any type of head/lacing.
Aroma was mild cherry with bread? farmy kinda hint to it
Taste I thought was real good...it was not overly sweet...it did have a nice fizz to it...it also wasn't as fruity/cherry as I thought it was going to be...clean crisp with a nicely tart aftertaste...
mouthfeel had a little fizz but was fairly thin...
drinkability was great...i blew threw the 10oz sampler and bought a growler the next day...my wife actually likes this too and we finished the growler in 2 days...good stuff
I will keep buying this while its still on tap at shoreline
Serving type: on-tap

I'll try this one for my 1st review, having enjoyed a few Belgian fruit lambics a few years ago in the Low Countries. This one pours a cranberry red, with a thick pink head. Nice lacing. Strong taste of sweet cherries, too sweet for my taste. Mouthfeel is of slightly carbonated cherry soda. Clean finish and no heavy aftertaste. Just a straightforward cherry brew, not at all complex. This one would pair well with an aged gouda or edam cheese. Not as complex as the ones I remember from Belgium, but not at all bad.
Serving type: bottle
