Served on cask at Winking Lizard's 2014 Cask Festival in Bedford Heights, OH. Michigan cherries were used in the making of this fantastic brew.

A - murky yellow with a very thin head. Some bubbles.

S - nice funk, but not over the top

T - Crisp, funky and very tart with a dry finish. Cherries shine through and worked great. Excellent.

M - Cask.

O - I wasn't expecting much and this beer blew me away. Had several pours throughout the afternoon. Very nice beer. Not exactly true to the Berliner Weisse style, but a great American/Wild Ale version nonetheless. Really packed a nice sour punch. Great job Thirsty Dog! Please make more!

From 04/08/14 notes. Had on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. 12 oz. pour.

a - Pours a deep reddish brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate to high carbonation evident. Looks darker than I would have expected, I guess because of the barrel and cherries.

s - Smells of tart cherries, sour fruits, oak, vinegar, sour wineand some very light funk. Very nice nose, the sour cherries shine through nicely.

t - Tastes of more sour cherries, tart fruity malts, funk, oak, spice, cinnamon, floral notes, and earthy notes. Light inegar. Not too tart, but some definite sourness and a lot cherries...awesome.

m - Light body that is crisp and low to moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a great berlinerweiss; love the addition of cherries to the mix. Not overly funky or sour but easy to drink and delicious. Highly recommended.
