Tasting notes

If you are a fan of fruit beer, but not the sweeter wheat offerings, this is your guy. We brewed this exactly to direction, but six pounds of pitted Bing cherries were ground coarsely, heated to 160F, the chilled and added to the secondary for one week. Amazing color, the beer was a bit cidery at first, but has developed after 8 weeks into a complex, cherry hinted beer. Alcohol content and hops more than balance any sweetness from the cherries, but we never got the ABV as high as we thought. Still, a very nice fall beer, looking forward to having a few with our turkey dinner. Cheers!
