Belgian wheat beer aged in white wine barrels and allowed to become very slightly sour. This is a wonderful session beer for those of the “sour and funky” persuasion.

after4ever (6474) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Draft at SB. Go, Fal, go! Man, this beer is rad. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a loose and sudsy white head. Bit tangy nose, hard to pin down, showing faint hints of candied lemons and grapefruits, a bit of sweet pickle, a bit of wet grassy funk, I dunno, it’s a beautiful and refreshing tartness as soon as you get a whiff. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread crusts, a bit of candied lemon, some mild sweet pickle, maybe a soft and subdued balsamic note way in the background. Tough to dial in precisely. Really gorgeous, and seems very singular. Not a lot of other beers around exactly like this one; maybe none. These days, that’s saying something--and this beer is not only new and different in its way, but it’s also made very well. This one could be an all-the-time beer, at least for sourheads.
