Brewery: Throwback Brewery
Tart cherries only. Can't have nothin' sweet in the cheeks.
Type of Beer: Blonde Ale
Cheek Squeezer is what Throwback Brewing says it is, a dry(ish) kettle soured blonde that punches with a fistful of tart. Crafted with New England ingredients, Throwback encourages you to "taste the local".
Throwback Brewery's' Beer Description (on can)
Cheek Squeezer is our kettle soured blonde ale infused with tart cherries. It's crisp & clean with delicate notes of cherries and an inviting fruity aroma. This beer drinks a bit dry, with a pleasant tartness that mellows after the first sip.

Final thoughts on Cheek Squeezer
Always fun to try variations on standard craft beers like a blonde ale. Not recommended as your main squeeze (see what we did there?). But, good to have experienced. Don't know why it didn't occur to us, but we weren't expecting the reddish pour.
