COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Sour Ale. This was a fun one to make. We took some of our barrel aged sour golden ale and added a bunch of fresh picked local peaches and let the barrels ripen. The flavors are earthy, fruity and of course...SOUR. Enjoy this one on a hot summer day with a ripe juicy peach in hand. From the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy!

Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2012
375mL bottle for my 2000th beer. Big thanks to Doodler for this big time want. A: Fizzy clear gold. No head at all, though. Great color, pretty much still in every other aspect, like wine. N: Super sour lactic acid. Apricots and peaches. Vinegar. Some residual sugar. Raspberry and acetone. Oak. Quite nice if not overly complex. T: Really shines here, unlike the nose. Lots of peaches still. Apricots and lemons. A good balancing sweetness which seems to be a hallmark of American Wilds. Oak is adding a nice balance. Unlike the sharp nose, this has a pleasant sour quality to it. M: Crisp and light on the tongue. This is exactly what I want from American Wilds. Not the heavy dense liquid I’m so often getting. O: A shining example of the style, though I wish the nose had held up like the body. I’m still thrilled to have tried this.
