Pouring a seductively red hue, with aromas reminiscent of cinnamon crusted cherry pie; this kettle sour treat is both tart and sweet. No pits about it, just the cherry on top, bottom and middle.

Pours an opaque cherry red from the can with a big pillowy 3" pink head, great retention, light lacing. Nose is sweet cherry syrup, a bit of grain/wheat, and a touch of sour. Taste is sweet cherry pie filling with just enough sourness to prevent it from getting cloying. Mouthfeel is full and rich but begs another sip, and none of the residual sugariness that is often the case with these sweet sours. Overall, this was extremely enjoyable and an excellent rendition on a style that has devolved into sweet, sticky messes.

Cherry pie in a glass! Honestly tastes like the "syrup" part inside of a cherry pie, with the cinnamon crust around the edges. My first kettle sour from TG and it's a winner. BIG TIME.

Poured from pint can into cervoise.
A: Pours a dark ruby red hue with 1 inch finely-bubbled off white head with very good retention.
S: Lovely fresh cherries with a hint of malt and spice.
T: Again, super fresh cherries and a stronger note of earthy spice.
M: Light body. Mildly tart with loads of cherry sweetness. Juicy feel.
D: Simply superb for style. Another outstanding fruited kettle sour from TG.

I love cherries; furthermore, I had to buy this beer to see if it tasted like a sour cherry pie. I used a tulip glass and served the beer around 44 degrees. A frothy and airy two-fingered pinkish-red head was created from the pour with excellent retention. The slow dissipation tatted thick lacing on the glass. The color is red like cherries. Putting the beer up to the light, I can see through it.

The aromas are tart-sweet cherries, fruity sweetness, biscuity, earthy, and a hint of baking spices.

I taste cherries, cinnamon, cloves, pie crust, fruity sweetness, tart cherries, and earthiness.

The mouthfeel is puckering and slightly dry.

The body is medium, low carbonation, and has a delightful finish.

The beer tasted like a slice of cherry pie. A fantastic sipper for the end of an unusual day. I enjoyed drinking this beer.
