If it smells like a cherry and tastes like a cherry, it’s probably King Balaton. Brewed with lots of wheat and small amounts of Mosaic hops, this beer is also given a healthy feeding of King Balaton cherries during active fermentation. You can expect a soft mouthfeel, subtle sweetness, and a slight tart bite from the fruit.
