Meager dusting across the surface for a head, swiftly evaporates to nothing, while it was there bright white hue, the lacing in turn is close to nonexistent. Pinkish red colored liquid, sparkling clear with a near metallic sheen, looks like a glass of rosé, the bubbles some good activity but they are few and far between. The nose is almost entirely cherries, no lies told on the label, some lemon and pie crust flakes, supporting mineral to crushed stone dust notes, sort of monochrome but, hey, I like cherries. Medium-bodied, taut prickle from the carbonation frames the mouth entry and lessens the deep sweetness of the cherries, close to maraschino cherry in flavor, although there are moments of “sour.” Then there is the strong salty, saline quality sort of comes out of left field. Palpable honey dappled pie dough and crust, freshly baked. The lemony accents help keep it fresh and lively. As in the nose it lacks complexity yet there’s no doubting the persistence of the cherry flavor. On the whole, though, it does not last that long through the finish. A lighter styled “dessert beer”?

Sampled at a tasting. Amber/pink pour with a thin head. Smells of malts and salts. Tastes sour, like apple cider, cherries, salt and pears. Medium body with a high carbonation.

Orange pinkish color with white head. Aroma is fruity, sour and savory. Taste starts sour up-front, really fruity and fresh with a salty note. Light body with high effervescence. Really interesting take on a gose but a bit too carbonated for my taste.

Bomber poured into a couple of snifters. The brew appears copper to pinkish colored with an off-white cap that froths up big and pillowy and holds well.

It smells minerally then lactic sour with natural scent of cherry skins.

The taste is tart like over-ripe cherry, greek yogurt and lemony lactic with saline almost brine notes.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. Overall pretty decent stuff.

As soon as I cracked the cap the pressure was evidenced by a loud hiss.
Even poured at a 45 degree angle the head raised in the glass faster than the beer itself did.
As I'd expect from the cherries, this poured a nice light red/pinkish color with a slightest hint of cherry and salt on the nose.
Also from the cherries but per the style, this gives you that nice lip smacking tartness you'd expect.
The aftertaste, while enjoyable, if I'm searching for a flavor, deep in the back of my palette, I'm getting Capt'n Crunch. Which is great because I love the cereal, I just hate the chewed up cheeks and gums you get after a bowl.
All in all an enjoyable beer and another win in the Modern Times assortment.
