CCBC-Cherry Blossom Ale

Washington D.C. in the springtime--cherry blossoms are everywhere.  So why not incorporate them into a brew?  The Capitol City Brewing Company did just that with its Cherry Blossom Ale. The ale was reddish, almost rose coloured. It was topped with a thin ring of eggshell head and had a very sweet, almost floral aroma. The flavour was extremely sweet, with notes of cherry pie and flowers. The mouthfeel was quite thick, almost syrupy. In my estimation, the Cherry Blossom Ale was too sweet to drink more than one. It was an interesting, fairly unique beer, but not really what I'm looking for in a pint. Still, I'm sure that there are those out there who would really dig it. Worth a try for the novelty alone.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
