Poured like somebody tapped the Mississippi except thicker/more murky. No head or lacing. Smell was rich malt and fatty butter along with a vinegar acidity that mixed well with a sour cherry tone. Taste is along the same lines but with more emphasis on the maltiness. Very muddy as everything seems to be mixed in while not complimenting the other parts. Incredibly rich body that was teetering on heavy, but the sourness seemed to lighten it up a bit. It finished dry making this very drinkable, but the heaviness of the malt will catch up with you.
Sampled at the Kelvin Arms.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased at the LCBO 750ml bottle for just under $9.00. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well pours with little head. Settles to a film and stays. Dark brown and cloudy.
S- Cherry and malt.
T- Sour cherry. Not quite ready yet. Needs time to blend. Raspberries will come through later when this thing calms down. Think that that will be a while though.
M- Tart and dry. Rather carbonated which is good for aging. Looking forward to having this one on a few years.
O- Pretty good. Way too young to drink. Will save the others for a few years down the line
This way too young fruit beer goes well with... Spicy chicken with green vegetables. Keeping it open for you to substitute in what you like as this beer will work well with many combinations.
