THE REVIEW

Name of beer reviewing: Lakefront Brewery My Turn Series Junk

Type of beer: Kettle Sour with Cherries and Sakura. Ale Brewed with Cherries and Cherry Blossoms,

ABV: 4.2

I want to mention this Beer was recalled because something with the fermentation process was making them explode in sunlight at room temperature.

Pre-tasting: (smell, labeling, color, what you're expecting) Smells beerish and fruity, color light auburn, I was expecting a beer fruit explosion.

Post-tasting: (duh) Tastes like chicken if chicken tasted like a berry, tart fruit punch in the mouth that wasn't too hard of a punch. Very glad I made this the last beer I'll ever drink.

You'll like this beer if: If you love delicious fruity tasting beer.

You'll dislike this beer if: I you hate delicious fruity tasting beer.

Timebomb Rating 13/13
