growler from markwise.

This one is also known as Hairy Cherry.

A: Pours looks sort of like cloudy grapefruit juice with a small white head.

S: Aromas of tart cherry juice, light grain, and karo syrup.

T: Wonderful blend of sweet cherry and tart raspberry. More sweet than sour, but there is a nice light tartness which makes this one really tasty. Light vanilla, and rock candy round things out. Really tasty beer. Kinda girlie but I like it.

M: On the thinner side, light in body, but good.

D: Awesome think Raspberry Tart meets Belgian Red.

Had this one at at RattlenHum served out of a Delirium Tremens snifter

A: Served with a white wisp of head left. Brew was deep red with light and spotty lacing. Was a bit cold but I'm sure the head couldn't have dissipated that much in the serving time.

S: Oaky wood skunk and candied cherry. No sour notes at all which was quite a surprise.

T: Starts off with red fruit and highly malty. Sours a bit in the middle and then sweetens again until the finish which is plain. As it warms, sourness appears a little more towards the end. Kind of a "reverse" lambic (and not in a good way)... sweet, then sour, not sour, then sweet.

M: Light bodied and highly coarse and carbonated though it does become a bit more silky as it warms. Finish is messy and wet but doesnt really taste like anything. Leaves a bit of an oily film in the mouth.

D: Not sour at all compared to some other lambics and the finish and overall flavor is... plain. It's not bad by any means, but its nothing to write home about. If there's nothing else, try it, if there are other choices, skip it.
