COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour ale is a strong blond ale aged in chardonnay barrels for up to 12 months, then aged with dried white figs and lemon peel or up to 12 more months. Aromas of sweet figs, golden raisins, and citrus zest are the first to be noticed. Hints of white wine grapes, lemon peel, and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to a crisp lemon tartness in the finish that leaves a lingering sweetness on the tongue.

dorain (759) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2018
Vom Fass (Vintage 2015) im Muted Horn Berlin 2018-02 getrunken. Ein leckeres, citruslastiges Sour Ale. Nur leider wirkt es mit seiner Chardonnay Fassreifung und den Einsatz von weißen Feigen und Zitronenschalen etwas verspielt und versucht mehr zu sein als es ist. Am Ende kann es nicht mehr als andere sehr gute Sour Ales und nach meiner Meinung stimmt hier das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis für mich nicht. Als Cuvée zusammen mit B.Nectar Zombie Killer ist es dann aber wieder eine Sensation im Glas. ;-))
