A two-fold experiment: a blend of two seperate beers of different recipes. The first beer is a blonde, brewed with domestic 2-row and a small percentage of Belgian caramel malts and cascade hops. The second beer is an amber of sorts, brewed almost entirely with malt imported from Weyermann, Meussdoerffer and Dingemans, hopped with German Perle. Both beers were fermented with our house wit beer yeast, and bottle conditioned. Pour carefully for clarity and enjoy. Brewmasters Signature Series beer #3.

A - Pours a hazy amber with a thin head that dissapears quickly. S - Tart cherries, apples, sparkling grape juice. T - Apple cider, tart cherries, green apples. Quite sour actually. The fruit dominates and itís hard to pick out anything else. Yeast comes through faintly. M - Light to medium, low carbonation. This is a unique beer. It pretty far from a Belgian Pale Ale. Itís almost more of a Lambic style. Not sure if thatís what they were going for but for a sour itís great! I wish that they would have geared this toward a "sour". It might have done better. I would have rated it higher. People who are expecting a BPA will be shocked. Serving type: bottle 12-05-2010

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2010
Amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, vanilla and dried fruit. Dry and slightly tart varamel and fruit flavour. Very one-dimensional American character except for the tartness which didnít seem appropriate for the beer

Bottle. Pours a clear copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma malt, caramel and notes of acidity. The flavor is malt, caramel and acidity. The palate is acidity. Overall this beer lacks balance.

I loved reading reviews of this one. This is a belgian and people love the sour notes? Really? This thing infected. Period. I rated it based on its infectedness. Is that a word?
