Sea Rose Tart Cherry Wheat Ale
Ballast Point Sea Rose Tart Cherry Wheat Ale? Yeah, and I chose to check it out on a day my wife was not home as I was sure all those promises in the name would not match her liking. Interesting pretty-pink fish featured on the label. 4.0% alcohol. 8 IBU.
Light reddish pink rose color. Cherries and some faint tartness on the aroma, pretty lackluster and hard to find. Fruity flavors are there, light cherry but pretty generic. Also, barely tart. For a "Tart Cherry" beer, that's two broken promises.
Faintly tart, on the flat side, kind of flavorless, definitely not a fan. I wanted fruit, tart, pucker, a little sharpness, some depth. Nope!
