Category: Sour Ale

Brilliant minutely hazy copper pink color. Fruity aromas and flavors of berry basket, mossy limestone, cranberry bog water, and wet tea leaves with a supple, vibrant, spritzy, dryish medium body and a seamless, interesting, relaxed finish revealing impressions of citrus and berry seeds and buttered toast finish. A toasty lightly berry accented sour beer with a rosé like character.

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.
