Clear old gold color. Hoppy, green aromas and flavors of green herbs and hop dust, haystack, dried tropical fruits, and grilled salmon skin with a supple, tangy, spritzy, sourish medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish that presents accents of apricot marmalade on herb toast, green apple and lemon, and oat cereal finish. A pleasant hoppy sour beer.

Sour Ales encompass the wide variety of intentionally soured ales that have recently become quite popular, but don’t fit neatly into traditional classifications. They are tart tasting beers that have been inoculated with either Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Pediococcus strains of bacteria or have been affected by wild yeast strains via spontaneous fermentation, or by the addition of fruits containing wild strains on their skins.
