From Mission BC’s Mission Springs Brewing comes their “Cherry Bomb Belgian Pale Ale”. This pale ale pours a deep copper colour with a tan head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing. The aroma consists of caramel malts, cherries and some floral aspects at the finish. The flavour is of caramel malts with a mix of dark and sour cherries, tartness and some hops bitterness to finish it off. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 28. The brew has just enough cherries in it to add a very interesting flavour to the beer without being overpowering. Kevin has really hit the mark with this one.
