4.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a light brown color with red hues. Bright white head. Reduces quickly to thin film and foamy bubbles around the edge. Very clear.

S: Tons of cherries and vanilla. Some oak and vinegar sourness as well.

T: Sum this beer up in two words---Sour cherries. Not an acidic sour, more of a tart sour with some funky vinegar. Leaves a sort of cherry and cranberry juice finish.

M: A little thin with elevated carbonation. More of a juice feel than beer.

D: Good drinkability. Went down easily. A little less cherry and a little more acidity would make this fantastic.

Serving type: bottle
