Pours out a blonde ale with some cherry giving it a pink hue. I love the artwork on the bottle. Usual cherry juice on the lighter (i.e. not dark cherry) side of things.

Taste, very straight forward, like a less sour sans pagie. I think I'm catching some brett. Light body, lactic sour, this is real straightforward and enjoyable. Its a good option at its price. Never seen bottles anywhere but the brewery though.

750ml bottle. Batch 002. Served in a stange glass. Pours a clear, very light orange-caramel body, three finger white head that dies down fairly quickly. No lacing. Smells of cider, vinegar, mild grainy sweetness, no cherry flavour. It's a bit musty as well. Flavour is fairly cidery; a bit of green apple, vinegar. Faint cherry skin, no tart cherries. Minimal leathery funk. Very effervescent and refreshing, like a good hard cider, but definitely not the flavour profile I was expecting. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, refreshing and dry. Overall, if you served this to me blindly, I would have thought this was a cider. Minimal cherry character. Nothing too special.

Bottle shared at mrbubbler's tasting.

Batch No: 002.

Pours a murky super light orange-red with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with grain, cherry, earth, and medicinal aromas. Taste is much the same with sour cherry, earth, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly refreshing, but a bit boring for a sour to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Great Berliner Weisse Style. Pours golden with a faint haze of pink. Cherry comes in the nose. Taste is cherry lemonadish. Perfectly balanced sour. This is for someone that likes a well done beer.
