Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 17th September 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A cloudy deep reddish purple colour with a one finger pinkish head that had decent retention while leaving nice lacing.
Aroma: Cherry coke with a splash of lemonade.
Taste: Sweet, syrupy sweet, with maybe slight sour notes. Cherry, candied lemon, coke, caramel syrup.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It’s a self-styled Cola-style Sour Ale, but it’s actually way more sweet than sour, even more so than sour cola candies. The aroma is great and despite the sweetness, I do actually enjoy sipping this cherry, lemon, coke mix flavour.
