This Lager is brewed by the Old Dominion Brewery which is out of Dover DE and founded in 1989. This is a Spring Seasonal and it has a nice 5.2% ABV.
Cherry Blossom pours out a nice cloudy red color that produced a decent amount of head that laced the glass. There was also quite a bit of sediment floating in the glass while drinking. The aroma of this beer is all cherries with a hint of some pale malts and it was pleasing. The taste of this beer starts off with a pale malt backbone, and then the cherries really take over your taste buds with a mildly tart finish. Now even though the cherries take over the beer I found the body of Cherry Blossom to be very light. There is also a great balance, and I found it very easy to drink.
Overall I think this is a great beer especially for the upcoming spring season. Heck I think this would be a great beer for the summertime given its light body, and full flavor. I would recommend you pick this one up if it is distributed near you. Unfortunately being in Missouri I don’t have this luxury. I would also like to thank Lauren again with Old Dominion for sending me a sample.
