Bright dark copper color. Sourish, smoky aromas and flavors of cherry-lemon vinaigrette, tropical fruits and flowers, and toasted nut brittle with a supple, tart, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, intricate, long cherry pits and pomegranate seeds, reduced lemon, grilled romaine, and marinated artichoke hearts finish. An elegant, refined sour ale reminiscent of a fine wine.

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.
