This may very well be the oddest looking beer I have ever seen. It looks like peach juice. Really. It looks like something that would be served at the cantina on Tatooine.

I guess this is just the Margot with cherries added, when it comes down to it? The cherry here though is a mild accent at best. Any tart or sour character is also mild. And what does show up disappears rather quickly. Feel is kind of thick, on the peach milky theme as well. An okay beer. Doesn't really put a lot of wind up my skirt.

Poured a very cloudy pale yellowish peach. White head forms and clings to the glass. She doesn't look sexy, but she is. Aroma of tart cherry pie, musty wheat, and certainly a bit of funk.

In the taste, roundly tart, nice cherry flavor that builds. Faint leafy bitterness with a sour tang. Dry wheat, tart from the cherries and from the sour mash technique. Mild lacto, good cherry notes, what's not to like.

Overall this is a nice brew, Berliner Weisse with cherries, spot on for this summer, and at this particular smoked meats and beer fest.

Pour is completely cloudy of a tangerine peach color with a white head that dissipates immediately and sits still on top. Nose is peach and tangerine with a leathery brett with a just a hint of cherry. Flavor is heavy citrus up front mixed with a light cherry. Brett isn't as leathery and gets a bit seltzery in back. Carb is strong on a very light airy body. Not bad stuff.
