BEER INFO

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

Style: Fruit / Vegetable 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.

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.

Bottle to PInt glass.
Aroma is light and fruity, but not too much of anything identifiable. Clear pink color. Minimal head.
Taste is, ummmm, bad. Alka-seltzer. Sour fruit. Like a Raspberry Tums.
Pretty Terrible. Glad to support breast cancer research though.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 5.5% abv

Appearance- Pours a deep pink raspberry. High white head tinted with a light pink hue. Good clarity.

Smell- Fresh raspberry, tart cherries

Taste- The fruit flavors start early, and out do any malt taste. Begins with a red raspberry sweetness. Definite cherry fruit flavor in there as well, which compliments the raspberries. The beer changes from sweet to a tartness of a different type of cherry. The tartness continues though the finish, and at this time the malt shows with a dry, grainy, and tart finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium in body with active carbonation.

Overall- An interesting fruit beer. This one is sweet and sour. The amount, and variety of fruit used in this beer is apparent. Hats off to Yards for donating portions of this beer revenue towards fighting cancer. A solid fruit beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a light orange to pink colored concoction with a small white head. The aroma is of sweet fruit and some grass. The flavor is mild hops with a tart fruit flavor. I enjoyed the flavor but a found the palate a little weak.
