Had this last night at the brewery. It’s part of their Brewhouse Rarities series and the first sour beer Flying Dog has made. Based on a Berliner Weissbier they added cherries, both sour and sweet, for flavoring.

A – Poured into a tasting glass really nice light red / pink hue. The beer has a healthy tight 1 finger bright white head that dissipates quickly to a nice ring of bubbles around the glass. The beer does have a slight haze.
S – Lots of wheat and a really nice pronounced cherry aroma are up front.

T – I got lots of cherry during the first half of the beer but by the second half it was a little muted. I am not sure if that was the lactic acid playing with my taste buds or what. Really nice acidity bite to the beer but not overwhelming at all. I went back for a second pour cause the first was really good!

M – Nice acidic bite from the acid, really nice and dry finish to the beer. Really good carbonation which I think works really well with sour beers.

O – I wanted more, wish it was bigger batch and put into some bottles. Keep up the good work and hopefully there will be more sours coming out of Flying Dog in the future.
