Minutely hazy golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of brown butter on graham cracker, dried tropical fruits, horseradish mustard, and ammoniated cheese with a supple, tart, effervescent, sweet-and-sour medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long bitter greens and bark and mango-herb vinaigrette finish. A very tart and bitter sour ale for the table.

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.
