I was lucky enough to move to the Philly area, and stopped into Monk's the other day. I had this on draft before my mussels came out.
A- Translucent mahogany, with an emphasis on some red highlights. Light light brown head, one finger thick, retains okay with some spattering of lacing.
S- Sweet, fruity. Tart cherry hits the nose quite strong.
T- Sweet strong cherry, with an acidic tart finish.
M- Smooth, yet with an acidic bite, fairly light body, and a puckering finish.
O- This is a fantastic choice for someone entering the realm of beer, as well as showing someone the diversity in beer. Lip smacking sweetness with a good tart balance. I like it.
Serving type: on-tap

Deep red, clear and effervescent. What cap that settles into persistent skiff.
Aroma is horsey sour. Crisp.
Taste: cherry tart with nice lactic sweetness.
Mouth: Dry with tart tingle on back of tongue.
Overall: delicious sour ale that is very refreshing and balanced.
Serving type: bottle
