Alengrin (4467) - BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2016
Sample shared at 1st Lambic & Sour Sunday (at Bierhalle Deconinck in Vichte). One of Hill Farmstead’s classic farmhouse ales, intended as a saison, but ’soured’ with ’wild’ fermentation agents and ageing on wine barrels so in practice a true New World sour ale rather than a genuine saison. Moussy, bubbly, snow white head, hazy straw blonde colour with a lime greenish hue, looking a bit like a witbier. Aroma has a wealth of fruity and funky impressions: sour cream, yellow raspberry, vanilla-like oak, lime zest, butter, soggy white bread, dry hay, white grapes, yoghurt, gooseberries... Tart, very fruity and estery flavor, lots of green plum, ripe gooseberry, peach, pear, spritzy but perfectly dosed carbo, supple and smooth, bit creamy mouthfeel. Lemony sourness cuts through it all without being sharply acidic; bready core, soapy wheatiness evident, rounded and complexely and dryingly tart finish with ongoing juicy fruitiness as well as drying wood notes, light wine flavor after swallowing. Beautifully balanced and delicate beer, but as said, much more a modern sour ale than a classic saison.

Due to artificial lighting, arbitrary rating for Appearance Peaches, lactic acid, lemon, unripe stonefruit. Sour-fruity, peaches, lactic acid, wheat, Bretts in the good way. Quite carbonated, lipsmacking acidity, but mals . Finally an American sour that remains easily drinkable. Txs to M & L V!
