Appearance: Reddish-brown with a small head.
Aroma: Overwhelmingly fruit; I can pick out some grapes and cherries.

New Holland’s Blue Sunday Sour is a fruit sour oak aged in barrels, which brings out a bit of woodiness in the flavor of the beer. The aroma is overwhelmingly fruity, though, which follows through on the taste. I can specifically pick out some berries, cherries and grapes.
The ale is well balanced, but is a bit sweet for what I’ve come to expect from sour beers. Overall though, Blue Sunday Sour is a delight and pretty easy to drink.
