Date: Dec 10, 2018
Beer: New Holland Brewing - Sour Inc. Stout with Cherries
Source: Holland, Michigan
" Cherry. Roasty. Tart." Sour Inc.
Michigan is well known for its cherries and we take pride in shoving
them into every other food we can get our hands on - cherry salsa,
cherry hot sauce, cherry BBQ sauce, and of course, cherry beer.
Upon opening the bottle, the smell is something like a cherry
infused beef jerky. The flavor is smokey and tart and the fresh
fruit comes through strong. I'm not typically a fan of sour beers
as they often have a high acidity that tastes like straight vomit
to me. This one doesn't come off like that at all though. I wouldn't
have even guessed that this was a sour beer if you handed it to me
and called it a stout. It would be a nice beer to give as a gift or
add as an addition to a mix-and-match six pack.
- Would I buy it again? Yes, but spaced out and in small quantities.
- How much could I drink in one night? Two bottles.
