COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over a year ago, the guys at CBX worked on a couple of collaboration beers with Westbrook. One of the beers, Citrus Ninja Exchange, was an immediate release and has since been brewed again. The other, a strong, dark, sour monster, was tucked away in barrels with wild yeasts and bacteria. That beer, dubbed "Old Time" after everyone’s favorite store manager, Brandon Plyler, is now seeing the light of day. A variety of barrels were used for aging, so you’ll see a handful of versions released, each with a different name. Grumpy Old Time spent the last year in Laird’s Apple Brandy barrels getting sour.

Palme (3311) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark plum red one with a small beige light lacing top. It smells of sour berries and brett mainly this. A little bit of red wine vinegar also in here. A nice Flemish aroma. Lots of sweetness initially, but quickly balanced out with a bone dry woody flavor. Red berries and dark candied sugar. Light, and then I mean HEAVY, burning in the throat after the swallow. Lots of flavor, really tasty. 03.05.2013
