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.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 12, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Pours light brown dark orange with a very thin white head. Nose is lemon peel, coriander, vinegar, rose pedals and apples. Taste is complex. A wave of fluctuating bitter and sweet with an ever present sour through it all. Mouthfeel is soft and sticky, a bit like syrup addition, body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorisPPattyn (9906) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2017
No head, cognac-coloured beer. Peach/apricot nose, bit herbal (like sage), alcoholic. Sour, again peach flavour, unripe nectarine. Sharp, astringent, dry-out effect and acidthinning. Another ultra-severe Cascade sour, but nice in the end... only... as to figs???
