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 Captainís cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy!

375mL bottle for my 2000th beer. Big thanks to Doodler for this big time want. A: Fizzy clear gold. No head at all, though. Great color, pretty much still in every other aspect, like wine. N: Super sour lactic acid. Apricots and peaches. Vinegar. Some residual sugar. Raspberry and acetone. Oak. Quite nice if not overly complex. T: Really shines here, unlike the nose. Lots of peaches still. Apricots and lemons. A good balancing sweetness which seems to be a hallmark of American Wilds. Oak is adding a nice balance. Unlike the sharp nose, this has a pleasant sour quality to it. M: Crisp and light on the tongue. This is exactly what I want from American Wilds. Not the heavy dense liquid Iím so often getting. O: A shining example of the style, though I wish the nose had held up like the body. Iím still thrilled to have tried this.

Pour is transparent golden yellow with a good bit of tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of peach, acetone, acetic acid, light bitter oak. Taste has a fair bit of peach fruitiness, moderate acidity, faint acetone, notes of acetic acid in the finish. Lighter body, strong carbonation, semi dry finish. Peaches are fairly bright up front, gets a little hot.

1/V/14 - 37.5cl bottle @ ThirstyBirdís place - BB: n/a (2014-457) Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy yellow to beige beer, small off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: mouldy cork, musty basement (cellar), pretty off, little fruity. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour, lots of citric acidity, bit dirty, mouldy, little fruity. Aftertaste: mouldy again, very acidic, citric and lemony. Not a big hit. Another US sour with fruit that disappoints. :(
