On tap
This is a light beer that has a similarly light tartness to make it different. The beer pours light pink, slight haze. The nose is actually a little sweet to me, with a hint of cherry. The initial taste surprised me with the tartness, but it was most likely due to the shift in tastes from the last beer. By the end, I thought the tartness was more refreshing, and it reminded me a bit of a crisp wine, with some grape notes coming through. The feel was on the watery side, but that falls in line with keeping it refreshing, in a way as well.

First had: on tap at Blue Mountain, Afton, VA

Poured a clear pinkish-orchid-amber color with a few stray bubbles on top, lively carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts and cherry juice, mildly grainy. The taste was similar, obvious cherry juice, low-key sour twinge, biscuity pils malts, hop profile was light, crisp and floral. Light-bodied and enjoyable brew here, not really my thing, but for what they were shooting for, it was well-done.
