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.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a reddish pink color. The head is a finger high, and lavender in shade. Retention isn't that great, nor is the lacing left behind anything to write home about. (3)

Smell: It's quite fragrant with the cherry/raspberry combination. General sweetness is also high...but not as high as I would expect. All in all, it's one note like most in the style, but it's also balanced (relatively) well. (3.5)

Taste: Yards did the impossible. They made a fruit beer that isn't sweet. I definitely get a nice opening salvo of fruit (raspberry comes through more vividly than cherry), but the finish sees some crackery malts appear, along with a slight reappearance of tart cherry. In a way, it's almost wine-like - this would make a fantastic base for a tongue-fucking sour ale. Hear that, Yards? ;) (3.5)

Mouthfeel: As far as fruit beers go, this is friggen' bone dry. The attenuation cuts through the sweetness beautifully. So does the vibrant carbonation. Refreshment level is high, too. (3.75)

Overall: On one hand, it's a fruit beer, so non-beer drinkers will enjoy it. On the other hand, it's also dry, so wine lovers and fruit beer haters may get a kick out of it, too. You guys can take your sugary-sweet, cherry pie facsimile beers, I'll gladly drink a few of these instead. (3.75)

3.55/5: Tasty yet bone dry fruit ale; what next, the Eagles winning the Super Bowl? ;)
