On tap at the Bier Abbey in Schenectady, NY.
Pours limp and red. Even before the glass is raised I can already smell a very tart, wonderfully smooth cherry aroma that's darn near New Glarus Belgian Red-level of crisp juiciness. Only the cherries here play up against nodes that are much more beerish than the Fruit Roll-Up flavors of NG's brew. The effect is sublime.
Tastes not *quite* as cherryish as it smells, but more varied. Dry up front, moving into gushing, moist cherry nodes and ending in a more traditional oud bruin bitter-tart brownness. Cherries linger far behind. Wonderful.
I got no idea why this isn't more revered.
Serving type: on-tap
