Brooklyn Manhattan Project

Two draft pours at The Brick Store, Decatur, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Delighted to come across this; an unexpected and happy surprise.
Beer forms a not especially attractive, Dubbel brown body but is topped with a wispy, white head that is sustained well to leave great lace. appearance redeemed.
I was NOT looking forward to this because I am not a fan of rye at all. HOWEVER, there is absolutely ZERO rye character present – I mean NONE! I guess that may disappoint some people, but for me it was the exact opposite – delighted!
It’s quite difficult to describe this beer as a whole. The best I could some up with was a sweet and sour medicinal experience. Not sure if that makes much sense, but it’s the best I could muster. Very light cherry note with a light herbal quality too. The beer is clean and sharp with a mild tartness, but NOT in the form of funk – much more in an light acidic manner. At the same time it imparts a fruity sweetness. Definite light cherry esters. Moreish, sweet and smooth as can be.
VERY tasty and insanely drinkable, another superb beer from Brooklyn.
