What the brewers say

“A sour blend from two continents featuring an intense cherry nose.”

What our panel thought

“Muted cherry nose followed by a subdued flavor with a gentle cherry note balanced by light acidity and a hint of tannin. The aftertaste is peppery and dry, with herbal fruit.”

What our editors thought

“Deep leathery and woody cherry notes on the nose, with a bit of pie spice—layered and complex with a rich jamminess. The sip plays between sweet and tart. Bold but balanced, layered yet lively.”
