BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
yardsbrewing.com

Style: Fruit and Field Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
We brew each batch with over 3,000 pounds of fresh raspberries and both sour and sweet cherries. The addition of fruit prior to fermentation makes this crisp ale tart instead of sweet. It’s pink in color of course, light-bodied, and refreshing with delicate, delectable berry aromas. We’ll bet the farm that there’s no better autumn seasonal around.

L---Deep, rich pink color. Crystal clear. Medium head that was slightly pinkish white. No retention.Very good lacing.

T---Sweet, cherries again. The smell of chemicals does not show up in the taste. Taste is mildly sour.

F---Tart & juicy. Quenching.

O---An ok beer. wouldn't turn down a free one. Won't seek it out in the future.

Poured into a small chalice: color is light red/pinkish hue, head is white with fine bubbles but not much presence with a thin presentation and light ring on the glass sides.

Smell is pleasant fairly fresh, tart berries with hard to distinguish cherry/raspberry split but still very good flavors.

Taste is similarly good with pleasant fresh, tart berry/cherry flavor with some light neutral malt, dry finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderate carbonation, tart middle and dry finish.

Overall, on of the better lighter berry/fruit ales with tart presence and dry finish.

Clear light pinkish color. Fairly well carbonated,nice feel. A sort of grain/mixed berry aroma. A very light sour,not very tart ,just a very good ale with a nice touch of raspberry and cherry. the fruit is
Very easy to identify yet it doesn't overpower or taste artificial. This is a favorite of mine as it is really well made and really refreshing and enjoyable

on tap at Romas pizzaria in Pottsville, pa. July release this year

arrived in a pint glass. light amber body heavily tinged pick. Head white, also tinged with pink. Head maintained throughout, lacing light, but decent.

aroma is faintly of cherries, muted.

Taste is tarted and sour, but not strongly so. manages some sweetness as well. Cherry flavor comes through, but a light and airy drink.

Mouth is between light and medium, tart on the finish.

Overall, on a hot and humid day, this is the sort of thing that really refreshes me. I've tried tart, sour beers in the colder months, and they just don't work for me. Cheers Yards!

Really nice color on this beer. Red/ amber with not much head. Maybe this isn't my style. Scent is not much there, some fruitiness and no beery elements. Taste better than the nose. Fruit wine taste like a non sweet blush. The feel is prickly champagne like carbonation.

If you like sours, this is a very good beer. I am a huge fan of sours, and I think this is one of the more underrated options available. I live outside Philly, so it's probably more available to me than most. It has an excellent look, a dark pink color when poured. It's brewed with cherries and raspberries, but it's not your typical "fruit" beer. What I mean by that is you get the sourness from the fruit, but not the sweetness like many expect. If you don't know what to expect, I understand people who do not like this beer. If you are into sours, this is a very good beer especially for the cost... plus, you're supporting the well being boobs, a cause we can all get behind.
