What the brewers say

“Features Michigan sour cherries. Matured in a cherry-brandy barrel.”

What our panel thought

“Fresh cherry notes in the aroma balanced by subtle hints of leather, hay. Cherry flavor is lightly sweet, dry, tart. Nice tannic backbone balances the sour edge. Behind the scenes, nice acidity.”

What our editors thought

“A fresh herbal note rides over juicy cherry in the aroma, rich with cherry flesh and a bit of cherry pit nuttiness. Tart cherry in the flavor with a strong but measured acidity, minimal hop character, and the slightest mineral undertone.”
