Brewed (with help from our great friend Jean of Tired Hands!) on the day of my grandmother’s passing (Norma), this is an inspired Biere de Mars fermented entirely in oak and inoculated with our house spontaneous culture.

Prufrockstar (1820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2016
2013 bottle, thanks to Reynolds314. Ruddy orange brown pour. Dusty; tart; some oxidation; light caramel. Surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly? Expectations are odd like that) tart and tannic through the finish. Suggests to me that there was once more sweetness to this, but time has dried it out (or maybe that’s bullshit -- who am I to say what time has done to a beer I’ve never had except for this one bottle generously traded to me). Medium- body, slick texture.

Waxed bottle poured. Huge thanks to Chris for sharing this gem of a style I know little about. Next thing I know I am enjoying the highest rated beer in the style. Reddish orange pour with a patchy head. Sour fruit aroma. Flavor is sour orange and cranberry juice, lingering berry. How this isn’t a sour, and a bier de garde, is beyond my knowledge, but the beer is fantastic. Sourness rating 7/10. Most excellent.
