Notes/Commercial Description:
We brew each batch with over 3,000 pounds of fresh raspberries and both sour and sweet cherries. The addition of fruit prior to fermentation makes this crisp ale tart instead of sweet. It’s pink in color of course, light-bodied, and refreshing with delicate, delectable berry aromas. We’ll bet the farm that there’s no better autumn seasonal around.

(recent release - poured into a balloon)

A: crystal-clear, hot pink-ish liquid... two-finger high froth on pour, settles out surprisingly slow - wondering if wheat or high-alpha hops could be the culprit... maintains a sudsy collar throughout, even leaving the odd splash of lace

S: toasted, honey-kissed cracker undercurrent... fairly intense fruit aromas - a bit of a blend of the two fruits used - hard to tell if one sticks out over the other (perhaps the sour cherry)... it's apparent they're fresh fruits and not extracts... kind of a fruit-flavored lip balm overtone, and lightly-used sweat socks... curiously tame overall

T: the tartness really jumps out, screams for a good few seconds, while a sort of earthy, almost buckwheat honey kind of note quietly surges forward - it's a good bit dulled by the tart cherry element... actually, after mulling over the aftertaste, it might be the cherry pits I'm tasting... if you concentrate on 'raspberry', you may taste it - all this fruit comes without overt sweetness

M: fairly light-bodied, mildly airy on the palate... dull silkiness... good bit of carbonation, at first, but only a very soft tingle... could use a little more spritz or bite

O: hmmm... I don't know... it's a nice beer that would appeal to non-beer drinkers... it certainly helps that it doesn't give in to being sweet, but it feels like it's missing something - like an herb of some kind - thyme? rosemary? basil? - perhaps something outside my scope of usual cooking ingredients... maybe it needs some (pink) pepper(corn)y spice... seems like a nice background and/or foundation that would benefit from dimension
