Dageraad Brewing in Burnaby BC has announced a new draft-only release called Kerasous.
Kerasous is a tart cherry amber ale made with tart montmorency cherries grown in Aldergrove and lightly kettle soured. It has a rich cherry flavour followed by a tart, crisp finish.
Kerasous is named after an ancient Greek city on the Black Sea coast of what is now Turkey, in the region where cherry cultivation is believed to have originated. Montmorency cherries are named after a town in France, but they actually originally came from the Black Sea coast of Turkey.
Kerasous is available now at the Dageraad tasting room, and they will be sending a few kegs out to bars and restaurants soon.
