Wicked Weed Cherry Go Lightly (Canvas Series)

Brewery: Wicked Weed Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 7.6%
Style: American Wild Ale
Other Notes: Foeder-aged sour red ale fermented with cherries

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Cherry Go Lightly is the first beer to fill our foeder and was inspired by the friends who helped us source this barrel monstrosity. As the name does not imply, we used a total of 2000 pounds of Montmorency cherries and multiple oak vessels to mature this Old World inspired ale. Friends inspire us, support us, and share in our love for this craft. This beer is for them.

Intro: A 500ml bottle of batch # 704, bottled on 14th November 2015 and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear reddish brown colour with a half finger off white head that dissipated quickly but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, cherry, oak, lifesaver candy sweetness, apple skin and vinegar with a tinge of light funk.
Taste: Sour, tart, cherry fruity forward with a touch of oak and vanilla on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and easy to drink. Makes me excited to try other Wicked Weed wild ales.
