Sweets - Black Currant Cheesecake
A Note on This Beer
After a long day of hitting the trails, it feels good to treat yourself.
And, now you can indulge with today’s smoothie Sour from Mountains Walking, the craft kings who PorchDrinking calls “the biggest trailblazers when it comes to crafting new and creative beers!”
Bozeman, Montana’s highly respected brew crew crafted their black currant cheesecake Sour with the avid do’er in mind. This celebratory dessert is perfect for toasting a job well done!
To start, they brewed their Sour base with oats and milk sugar to create a rich, thick beer. Then, they packed it with over 1,500 pounds of black currant and cheesecake confectionary! No matter how you slice it, that’s A LOT of baked goods and berries loaded in every sip.
The creamy, smooth texture lasts throughout, but the tart black currant stands out right at the start of every drink. Afterward, the tangy cheesecake notes climb onto your palate, only to open up to a beautiful, tannic finish from the dark berry’s flesh.
Whether you’re wrapping up a hike, mowing the lawn, or just getting that last pesky chore done, you gotta celebrate a finish! Go ahead — crack open some Sweets. It’s exactly the drink you deserve, and an excellent pairing with the view from the top.
Mountains Walking has also climbed the proverbial trail of craft beer, winning 2 Golds and 4 medals at the North American Brewers Association Beer Awards!

I’m not sure? The black currant is awesome. And it definitely has a cheesecake flavor. But I don’t know if it’s pleasant or not haha - the more I drank it, the less I liked it. The smell is awful :(
from the reviews I don’t see beer drinkers. this is a solid beer. I went from drinking just IPA’s to finally understanding sours and Berliner Weisse’s. it has made me appreciate all types of beer styles . Mountains Walking definitely is doing it right
It was just too much!
Tastes EXACTLY like a beer that is trying to tease me that it’s a slice of cheesecake. This brewery is proving to be one of my favorite.
Cheesecake flavor comes through velvety and creamy with hints of vanilla. Finishes with a light sour reminiscent of blackberry. Very good overall and enjoyed
Ordered from Tavour in 16 ounce glasses, chilled, and poured into a hurricane glass. Look: deep magenta colored with a half-finger sized white head that dissipated and left a light pink colored ring of foam and light pink lacing down the glass as we drank. Smell: Cheesecake and berry up front, followed by malty cobbler notes. Taste: Sour berry up front, followed by cheesecake that dominates the nose, trailing malt, vanilla and more cheesecake that hang around a while. No booze, no bitter and no hop presence. Feel: Light to medium feel, light tickle of carbonation on the front that dissipates quickly, leaving sour notes in the trailing feel that provide a crips finish. Overall a solid addition to the season series from mountains walking. We are fans of Mountains Walking and their sour series is pretty spot on to their description. This is a nice, refreshing addition to their sour and seasonal series. Love the cheesecake with the berry notes, almost enough that it is like a cobbler. Fun beer. Cheers!
the black currant is strong and tasty and an excellent blend with sweet cheesecake. the flavors dance with each sip. its well balanced dessert has the smallest touch of earthiness
It tastes almost exactly like the description. a must try if you are a cheesecake fan.
Like actual cheesecake
taste just like cheesecake
Too sweet and syrupy for my taste
Does actually have a sweet cheesecake flavor.
Super interesting! Black currants are definitely there with some hints of creamy cheesecake. Maybe even a hint of vinegar?
Definitely a more sour entry than usual from the “Sweets” line. The slow buildup of cheesecake was profound.
Probably a 4.1 solid cgpark is also a douche when he reviews … it’s a good solid creamy fruity beer with a little cheesecake mouthfeel and Taste 👅
very much enjoyed this one. tart and creamy beer combo
Tart up front from the berries and smoothes out towards the finish. Sometimes sours are over the top sour and this one isn't which is a big plus for me. Got even better the more I drank it.
tastes like wine ion like wine
Cheesecake and black currant really stand out. Great beer.
pretty damn good! highly recommend.
Truly tastes of berries on cheesecake
Surprisingly strong cheesecake flavor. very dark berry color. Tastes exactly like a cheesecake with a berry glaze
Notes of vanilla[emulating cheesecake], the black current almost brings out a raspberry flavor. A tart fruity fragrant flavor that hits you, then dissipating to a smooth almost subtle yet smooth cheesecake flavor that leaves you begging for more. So good!
Way too sour for me. Like some others have said, it’s vinegary.
A nice take with a berries and cheesecake mix into a fruited beer!
was super good. I only got two cans the first one I opened was tart as tart could get not much notes of cheesecake. then my second omg the blend was perfect. tart at first and the pastry hit so hard in the background.
wow! blew my mind how much of the cheesecake flavor that comes through. yummmm
sweet mix of fruit and cheesecake, solid sour ale
What an incredible beer. Perfectly tart with just the right amount of cheesecake flavor coming through.
delicious tart cherry flavor upfront with a slight smooth cheesecake finish
definitely as described. great beer!
cheesecake aroma came through strong at opening. waned a little as I drank it. Not a sour fan, but I could handle this one. Definitely some unique flavors.
that cheesecake is really magnificent. don't know how they did it.
actually tastes like cheesecake. solid sour sweet beer
sour and sweet, almost like a creamy blackberry lemonade. delicious
This style beer was always my favorite, but my problem is that it was just plain sour that I couldn't even get halfway into finishing a single can.
creamy, tart, flavourful. all around delicious
Amazing flavor with a strong cheesecake finish!
Excellent black currant flavor! The cheesecake is very subtle, but it works perfectly.
berry cheesecake to the face!
Another winner from Mountains Walking. Nice balance of sweet and tart.
party in my mouth
bitter sour, not good
very good. sweet and sour.
fruited Berliner Weiss means it’s going to be sweet, this one is top of the line. couldn’t enjoy it more it’s exactly as advertised
Sourness from the black currant with the creaminess and richness from the cheesecake; perfect dessert
so good that I’m drinking my cheesecake from now on, thanks to Mountains Walking!
cheesecake bits, tart
