On tap at Taphouse 15, enticingly gunked-up sour ale retains vibrant cherry-berry pureed smoothie creaming. Rampaging sweet ‘n sour hard-candied cherry intensity pleasantly outdoes tangy blackberry, rummy coconut and tart rhubarb illusions. Better than cherry rhubarb pie.
On tap at Taphouse 15, kettle-soured ‘cinnamon-crushed cherry pie’ may lack advertised sweet spicing but its oaken cherry salting, candied cherry tartness and cherry rhubarb twang provide lightly embittered snazziness countering just a pinch of grenadine sweetness.
