The cherry in this beer has an odd effect of almost turning it into a sour. On the front it is very sweet almost sour due to the very prominent cherry flavor. On the backend, it finishes itself like a "lite" stout. Not dry or bitter, but still full bodied.
Atwater is one of Caitlin's favorite breweries - but this is her least favorite beer she has tried from them. For me, possibly my favorite.
