7th Day Brewing YTG Cherry Sour

Cherry Sour

As a former advertising exec, I must admit I get a little sceptical when corporations talk about "doing good". Yet even my stone cold heart feels like it just might grow three sizes this day upon hearing about the Making Waves 2022 series by 7th Day Brewing. This year 7th Day will be releasing nine unconventional brews that pave the way for positive change. The first is the YTG Cherry Sour released on International Women’s Day.

A dead ringer for creaming soda once poured into a glass, a sniff of the lightly carbonated YTG reveals subtle crushed cherry aromas with the faintest hint of rosé in there. Initial sipping provides a mild mid-tongue sour hit before more of that wine-like complexity announces itself like a theatre kid stepping out from behind the red velvet curtains. A little lemony sweetness also plays around your lips which makes licking them extra fun.

Don’t let the shiny can art by Brent Smith fool you, this isn’t the big, bubbly sessions number you might expect. At 6 percent ABV a few of these could see you miss out on sitting on a pocket-sized sour symphony, with a smidgen of citrus and a suggestion of vanilla. It’s also very at home drunk straight from the can, by the way, to the point where I recommend you try both drinking methods.

There are eight beers still to come in 7th Day Brewing’s Making Waves 2022 series, so keep your eyelids peeled and your stations tuned in with number two set to drop early April.

PS YTG stands for Yeah The Girls, by the way.

PPS Throughout March, 7th are donating $1 from every pint of YTG Sour Cherry sold in the taproom to the Dress for Success organisation in support of their Empower Hour campaign.
