COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Unique Dry-Hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale

We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but whats the difference? Its sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sallys out there, You know who you are...

You remember it like it was yesterday. The beer flowed like music. The music was all that mattered. What mattered most was that nothing else mattered at all and the world outside fell away as a dream disappears upon waking, ephemeral and vaporous. You cradled her in your hand, lips trembling, her citrus suchness a swarm of expectation in your mind, her carbonate beauty as satisfying as it was overwhelming. You were new to this dance but she was not. Taking her in completely she seized your senses and you were consumed by the luminous passion, her residual sweetness, and the tart earthiness of her grin... This brew is dedicated to the real Aunt Sally. You know who you are. And you know why.

Extremely refreshing. Sour and fruity with some elegant hopping to create a sparkling and crispy brew. A masterpiece!

Restrained tart aroma in a golden pour. Similarly laid back tart taste too - but with a surprisingly flavourful fruity body before a crisp clean finish.

A sour mash that's not too sour. Good body and smooth going down. Not as heavy as some other sour mashes either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head and good lacing. Aroma is tart with citrus and pit of pine. Taste of a tart apple, some tropical fruit and subtle sweetness in the background. Nice bitterness that lingers a bit into the finish. Medium body, tart but quite refreshing for a sour. Nice beer.

Aroma is citrus pineapple onion floral hopping. Very Lagunitas. Appearance is . clear golden large bubbled medium white head that lingers fairly well. Taste is lactic tart forward, followed by pineapple onion Lagunitas aroma hopping then a light sweetness and mild hop bittering. Palate is light +, very crisp, tart and refreshing. Overall a nice beer. Nice tartness but still has plenty of hop flavor. Havent tried much like this out there, but seems like a simple mix of two beers..... small IPA and a locto sour. Either way, a nice easy beer that I can see becoming more popular.

Lagunitas has really impressed me with most of their IPAs. But the when I poured the Aunt Sally into the glass, I smelled a rancid tartness reminiscent of granny smith apples. I did a double-take, reconsidered, and tried the beer. Sour is the first thing you taste, then a slight sweet sensation. If this were a sour gummy worm cocktail, I could drink it, but an ale, no thank you.

12oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 41. Color is a bright gold with just a touch of haze. Carbonation is very good giving a bubbly head. Aroma is a mix of pine and fruit. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Wow, flavor is unexpected, first it comes on sweet then a big bold tartness jumps out at you. The sweet gives mango, peach and a bit of pineapple, when the tart jumps in you get apple, more peach and citrus zest that leans on lime. After taste is dry as the tart fruits linger. Overall Im not sure what they were going for here but this is one tasty, complex and interesting brew.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, foamy white head and lively carbonation. Nose is of tropical fruit, bready malt and earthy hops. Body is medium and very tangy. Taste is very sour, herbal hops, bready malt and lemon zest. Finish is long, sour, bitter. Good brew if you like sour.

3.3
Oscbert (1296) - Lincoln, California, USA - APR 20, 2017
Strong citrusy hop aroma of orange and grapefruit, typical lagunitas style aroma. Pours clear amber golden color with small wispy white head Sour notes in flavor, tart raspberry with lots of citrus hops as well, bready malt. Light to medium bodied, mouth puckering astringency, very dry, woody finish. I like this one. A bit over hopped in my opinion. The sourness makes it very interesting. With it being so dry not sure how many I could drink of these though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
