Iron Hill Cherry Tart
The final beer I ordered on my last visit to Iron Hill in West Chester, for dessert no less, was the Cherry Tart. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head that has good lacing. The aroma consists of cherry and wheat. The taste is light cherry but slightly sour and a good wheat balance. The taste has a light sugar sweetness and is not too sour or weak. The alcohol content is 5.8% ABV. Overall, Iron Hill achieved their goal in making this beer taste just like a cherry tart. I was surprised that the cherry wasn't too overpowering in its sourness, but it was a great tasting beer, especially for dessert.
