The weather has been warmer lately and while I don’t let the seasons dictate what I drink, I will think of the way others drink when it comes to style. So, this is a tart cherry wheat, a lighter, refreshing style, at least in theory. I’ve been hit-or-miss with Ballast Point in the past. Their Sculpin and other IPAs are just not my thing. I’m hoping this is different and that I will get satisfaction out of it, because I like tart wheats and such.
BeerAdvocate has no ratings at all for it. Untappd has it at 3.34 caps out of 5. RateBeer has it at 43 Overall and 63 in Style. Those are great numbers and I hope it’s not indicative of what I’ll think about it. It’s only 4% ABV so it is certainly light. Have you had it? What did you think? If you’ve not had it or just have a hankering for more, head on down to City Beverage and get your sixer. Tell them that this is the TLD beer of the week and get 5% off your order. Tune in late tonight or tomorrow to hear what Caitlin, Danielle, RiverRun and I think about it.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Our Sea Rose tart cherry wheat ale is a fresh take on fruit beers. Originally conceived during an employee-led R&D brew, it’s one of our most imaginative recipes yet. The American wheat style is light and clean, while fresh cherry juice adds a soft coral color and fruity nose that gives way to a dry, slightly tart finish. It’s approachable, yet unexpected—exactly what we love to brew.” – Ballast Point
