A: Dark amber compared to some other FR I have tried. little lacing and little carbonation.
S: More sour cherries on the nose than anything. You get the musty wood too which is nice but not too much outside of that for me.
T: Nothing too crazy outside of what to expect within the style but they nailed this to a tee. The sour cherry profile is balanced nicely with a clean sensation.
M: Surprisingly just a medium-light mouthfeel with little carbonation. One of the more drinkable FR I have tried.
O: This beer has an odd palate-cleansing sensation that amazed me. Not too sour nor a fruit punch with is refreshing in its' own right.
