The pre-release images from Cherry Psycho’s brew day featured a shot that appeared to be an horrific accident – a vibrant red-stained industrial blender next to an otherwise normal human leg suggested a bloodied prosthesis or the beginnings of an aggressive android invasion. The reality, however, was the result of blitzing 60 kilograms of sour and dark cherries for a very interesting IPA; crisis over and beer now with a name.
Like the blender, Cherry Psycho is a striking strawberry red in the glass with earthy cherry aromas. These soon lead through the tight carbonation to fuller fruit on the palate, which intriguingly evokes a rosé wine like profile. Cherry tartness creates depth, booze is subdued and the soft bitterness finishes short, allowing the fruit and tartness to provide the beer's refreshing length.
