COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We wanted to make a different harvest ale besides a fresh hop IPA so we decided to do something strange. This is a sour ale fermented on grapes from The Vineyard at Hershey. We then dry hopped it with locally grown Cascade hops from South Mountain Hops and also Centennial hops. The result is a blush colored sour ale with an INCREDIBLE aroma. Enjoy!

New England Bucket List Trip #258. Keg at the brewpub as Hop Tart 1.2. Pours a clear cranberry with a thin fizzy tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of dry grape, caramel, toffee, vinous notes. The taste is tart grapes, earth, funk, mild caramel malt and piney hops. Medium bodied, lingering tartness.

Growler thanks to Josh. Pours a clear ruby with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong grape and vinegar. Thin mouth nice tart grape, light hop, clean, very nice.

Growler. Bright deep red/purple. Sweet tart grape juice aroma with an earthy hop note. The taste adds sweet red wine qualities and sugar. Light sour tart feel with low carb and a touch of bitterness. Interesting and unique but, not my style overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours purplish ruby, like cranberry juice with no head. Aroma is blood orange, grapefruit and citrus rind. Taste follows and adds leafy hops, floral and mint notes. Thin mouthfeel and moderate carb. Very strange but good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy reddish purple with a pinkish head. Aroma of grapefruit, welches grapes, slight vinegar. Taste is fruity and sweet up front and slightly tart at the finish. Goes down easy but not as amazing as 3.0.

cpetrone84 (1678) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Had on tap last November, catching up now. Pour is watermelon pink with a bubbly very light pink head. Nose is a bit metallic, berry fruits, faint touch of lactic, subtle grassy hops to balance. Taste also has a metallic hint, flavors are nice but subdued. Fruity passion fruit, subtle Brett and some grassy hay like hops. Sourness is moderate, fairly dry finish with a balanced carb and soft light feel.

blipp (6869) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Growler. Pours pink and clear, almost spritzy looking. Light tartness, citric fruits, soft flowery bitterness, and a crisp lemony tart finish. This is an off one, but definitely good and very drinkable.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Tasted from Growler. Poured a ruby/pinkish color with a small sized head. Citrus, funky, berries, floral hops and pine. Interestingly different and enjoyable.
