Brilliant amber color. Aromas and flavors of maple syrup, molasses drizzled grains, waxy bit o’ honey candy wrapper, and wet glue with a supple, effervescent, dryish watery body and a peculiar, medium-length finish with shades of nutshell and wet bark finish. An odd assemblage of discordant flavors.

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.
