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 what’s the difference? It’s sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally’s 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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Crisp tart aroma. Light body with some lacing. Clean and refreshing light citrus taste that leaves a slight tingling sensation. Flavors are not overpowering and the finish is a bit dry. Good but not great. Enjoyable.

Yeasty, funky, vegetables waiting for compost. Sweet tart is on the money, candy fades to medicine with a bittersweet finish. I’m surprised this was made, sold, shipped across to the other coast, and displayed in a grocery store. But I freaking love that it was. Grape, blueberry, all kinds of fruit come peeking out. There’s a generous bittering on the finish.

12oz bottle pours a clear goodness with a large white head. Mandarin orange citrus dry hopped aroma and yeast. Taste very much like lemon dish soap, tart lemon zest, and lightl sour. Part of me is enjoying this outside in the heat, part of me is not sure. Interesting.

3.9
mcberko (18950) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of lactic notes and light barnyard funkiness. Flavour is aggressive, with lots of lacto, barnyard funk, and loads of citrus. Rather acidic but not in a detracting way. Well-balanced. Really good.

3.4
RobertDale (6848) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Comes a mostly clear gold with an average white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is tart citrus, malt, and a bit of funk. Pretty good.
