I quite like this, though you really have to concentrate in order to find the sour cherries.
Once you spot them they are definitely there, though they’re more a sweet shop flavouring than an addition of real fruit.
You see, for those of you that don’t know, this is the next instalment in BrewDog’s brewed by popular consensus range, and this time it’s a barrel aged IPA with sour cherries, and you get everything you might want from such a beer.
There’s a chest warming boozy heat, some damp dank and dark oak woodiness and then, when you finally find it, some rich red sour cherry flavours.
You also get a good honey and waffle malt and a slap of sharp resinous pine wood and hedgerow hops.
All in all its the kind of beer you expect BrewDog to make, interesting, drinkable, heavy with booze and over-marketed.
