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.

Had on tap over at Molly Malloy's. The beer lived up to its name with a slight pink-amber appearance with even the head having some hints of pink. Very fruity sweet smells from this beer. A bit sugary with mostly a raspberry aroma. A little bit too strong for my nostrils but I did appreciate the berry punch this beer gave. Taste was a bit tart with a mixture of raspberries, cherries, and hops. Definitely an interesting balance of fruit and hop flavors. The mouthfeel felt slightly too watery with not as much carbonation as I would think this beer would get. If it had more crispness, I think the flavors would really come alive more. Overall, an interesting fruit beer.

The look is cool, slightly pink. The smell is great, you get fresh berries, almost jam-like. And then you drink it. The beer is super carbonated, it starts clean and then it punches you in the face with SOUR. The after-taste is like eating a sour patch kid. Mouthfeel is good, but you want to swallow quickly and brace for the sour. It might be good for some, but for my taste it's not something I'll be buying again.

Pours, well, pink. Would be weird if it wasn't pink. It's just an ok head with low retention.

The smell is slight sour and tart. Cherry and raspberry smells as well.

The taste is kind of refreshing slight sour bitter cherry taste. Nothing too over the top hense the refreshing part.

The feel is pretty smooth. The bitter builds but not to the point of tongue exhastution.

Good beer. Nothing that I would have thought to buy but it was enjoyable.

Pours a dark pink color with off white head that dissipates very quickly. Smells funky with tart raspberries. The taste is pretty good, I can pick up the raspberries and the cherries. The feel is a little thin, and the tartness, though it is subtle, is somehow still harsh. Overall this is still a good summer beer for kicking back and relaxing.

I like that this is a fall seasonal. The color is appropriate of its name. It smells very fruity and floral. Somewhat tart. The taste certainly is tart. Fruity. Luckily not sweet. But the aftertaste is almost the flavor of Liquid BandAid™. Very bubbly. Dry quick finish. Reminds me of champagne almost. Wouldnt buy it if it wasnt for breast cancer funding.

Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into stange glass.

Look: they didn't lie; the ale has a curious pink appearance a shade brighter than ruby red. high amount of bubbles and a white white head.

Smell: the berries overwhelm suitably in the smell... not much else you can smell through the tart.

Taste: surprisingly to me, the tartness of the berries is a better balance than something really sweet. I was astonished how good it was. Still not my cup of tea, but it's really well done. Like an Abita Purple Haze, only more tart and on steroids. If I were to put this into the "shandy" category, I'd say it is one of the best... I'm not a huge fan of shandys, but this is more interesting and refreshing than some of the lemon-based ones.

Mouthfeel: smooth feel with a nice malt backbone... Lip-smacking tartness creates a lemonade feel to it, but it still feels like a beer.

All in all, another solid one from the boys at Yards... I'm not biased being from Philadelphia at all, though ;-)

i love sour and raspberries but this wasn't as good, to me, as Victory's Kirsch Gose. i know its a different style but it's similar in my mind. enjoyable light sour beer but nothing spectacular. a refreshing beer when you don't want something too malty or bitter

Look: The name is spot on: it's Pynk.

Smell: Faint gummy bears. Doesn't really fit the beer.

Taste: Subtle tart sour with also subtle berries. Starts the same as it finishes.

Feel: Thin with a good amount of carbonation.

Overall: A good session beer, Pynk could be a good bridge to Sourtown.
