Down The Road Cherry Feyborn Berliner Weisse

My parents brought this beer back for Val, but she wasn’t a huge fan. Let’s see what I thought of it.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Introducing the newest iteration of our well-received Feyborn Berliner Weisse, this time with a cherry twist – something crisp, refreshing and decidedly different. At 4.5% ABV, this new brew features a kettle-soured wheat base with a blast of sour cherries and will be available this winter for a limited time only! At its base, Berliner Weisse is a low ABV, golden wheat that is more sour than most wild ales and less sour than lambics. Inspired by the diversity of the schuss tradition, Down The Road is excited to bring back this favorite with seasonally appropriate tart cherries!”

Random: This uses Cascade hops.

The beer poured with less than a finger of white head. It dissipated by the time I took the picture and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear reddish-brown, with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was pungent. It hit me with a generous combination of sweet and tart red cherries and white vinegar. The taste had a bit more depth. It started with tart red cherries and went into white vinegar and cider vinegar. It also had some wheat character to it as well with very light spice. The body was on the lighter side with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy with tart cherries. I have no idea how much this beer was since it was a gift, but this was a solid beer that just needed a touch more flavor. Despite that, I would have it again.
