Brownish dark red pour, small head. Cherry aroma, somewhat subdued.

Taste hits its stride, notes of cherry, blackberry, good amount of sourness. Acidic mouthfeel, citrus comes in too. Malt sweetness is on point, not too sugary, more like brown sugar in the right proportion.

On tap for the first anniversary party at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a murky reddish-brown with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sour cherries, funk, and some medicinal aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic quality on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is not too sour and quite drinkable.
