COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Sour Ale. This was a fun one to make. We took some of our barrel aged sour golden ale and added a bunch of fresh picked local peaches and let the barrels ripen. The flavors are earthy, fruity and of course...SOUR. Enjoy this one on a hot summer day with a ripe juicy peach in hand. From the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy!

mathieuc (3335) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of vinegar, oak and just generally acetic. Taste is of vinegar, acetone, light fruits (peaches). Moderate body and carbonation with surely a vinous mouthfeel, just like red wine vinegar is vinous I guess. Meh, another vinegary mess ’merican sour.

Bottle (375 ml) shared at tasting. Thanks to czar for sharing. Hazy orangey with a small white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, acetic fruitiness, mild acetone and herbal notes. Taste is a bit sweet, moderate acetic presence, mild buttery notes. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Oaky finish. Not the most complex sour and slightly off. A tad too acetic for my liking.

ineedbeer (1819) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Poured from an old bottle, batch 1 likely. Aroma is moderately fruity with a medium light stone fruit note. Some light tropical fruit with light oak. Medium acidity with some light citrus notes. Pours a hazy, pale gold with a small, thin white head that recedes to the edges where it lingers for a bit. No lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with some medium light peach and stone fruit notes. Light tropical fruit with medium light citrus. Light oak with low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer. Good fruit notes that have lasted surprisingly well considering the age. Acidity is a bit sharp, but not too over the top.
