A darker brown color with some red running through it, almost no head on the beer, the flimsy bubbles that were produced quickly vanished into the summerscape.
Cool aroma that clearly gets all the fruit aspects across, was surprised how prevalent the cherry was. Apple and cranberry followed that up. Pleasant, tart.
Taste was like many of the 750 fruit beers from NG: Plenty of sweetness, but never sugary, tart, but nowhere near mouth puckering sourness. These are mild in the sour department, but they really do seem to be going for a balanced approach to all things fruit. Funny to think how good of a beer they can make by "accident". Cherry in the mouthfeel was still the dominant part of the profile.
I think I would like an even more sour, innoculated version of this beer. Crank it up f'ers.
Not better than the Belgian Red, but just as good if not better than Raspberry Tart. Plenty of unique points on this one. Plenty light on its feet at 4% abv. A great morning and hot weather beer. Plenty earthy too. Good for blowing minds when people think the only beer is BMC AAL's.
