I had this in my "Feast of Fools" variety pack. In a way I must have been confused to think it would taste like cherries but it came off as a lambic.

A - reddish brown in color. a bit of lacing that fizzled a bit quick.
S - Sour cherries. Kind of off putting but I figured it would be pretty good.
T - If your a fan of beer sours you would love this. Really moderate sour with a cherry tone. Not really loving this beer.
M - Went smooth after a while of drinking it but really couldn't turn away from how off-putting the sour was.
D - I had six from my case which was too much and ended up in a couple of them throwing in a shot of Butterscotch schnapps. It killed the sour and kind of rounded it out but I wouldn't recommend this since it made the ABV increase to a ridiculous level. Still it really was the only way to down the rest. If magic hat makes anymore sour odd nations I will avoid.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruit, Belgian yeast, some spices and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of caramel, dark fruit and spices. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty malt character and some Belgian yeast followed by a little sourness. The hops presence is mild but creates some balance. The after-taste slightly tart and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be, but there isn’t much that’s too good about it either.
