Wolf's Ridge Rosy Cheeks (8/10)

A relatively recent entrant to the Columbus beer scene, Wolf's Ridge Brewing offers some great beers and excellent food.  Their tap room will be opening in a few weeks, but the restaurant is open now. 

Rosy Cheeks is their Winter Warmer style beer.  It joins their Belgian style Tripel, Dubbel, rye, and Rauchbiers.

Rosy Cheeks pours a dark brown with thin beige head that lasts several seconds. 

The aroma is malty, with cranberry and dark fruit elements to it.

The flavor matches up to the aroma.  It starts malty and mildly sweet, with cranberry and raisin or date like notes to it.  The finish is mildly bitter. Despite being 7.7% alcohol there is no burn to it.  A very easy to drink and pleasant winter warmer without the usual spice elements.

You may find this at different establishments around town though I've only seen it at Wolf's Ridge's shop downtown.  It's well worth making a visit to try thoughts and there other great beers.

Rate Beer has only a single rating for the beer, and Beer Advocate has none as of this writing.  You'll just have to trust my 8/10 rating for it.

Price per glass is approximately $6 at the time this was written.
