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.

Healthy clear orange pour with a half inch of khaki head that quickly settled to a foggy thin layer. Juicy herbal hop aroma, pollen too, mixed with sweet tart, raspberry and strawberry is evident. Carbonation is average, viscous oily mouthfeel, clean finish. Flavor is an interesting blend of a light sour beer and complex hops. Herbal and pollen-y hops, pert sour taste with indistinct flavors. Good, refreshing, light beer, good mix of sour and complex hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and tart. I wish it was more like 10% alcohol like Peche n Brett. Still, excellent taste and sharp bite.

On tap at Final Gravity. Pours golden with a thick off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a moderately sour pale malt flavor with a dry earthy finish.

Not quite a sour and not quite an ipa - but hoppy enough for one and sour enough for another. Loads of bitter and juicy citrus on the nose and palate. Easy drinking yet very tasty. A bit of an odd hybrid, way more so than say, the Almanac hoppy sours, but I’m surprised there’s not more love for this. I love hops and sours so this is a win win beer.

Aromas of melons, floral hops, citrus, lemon. Taste is melons, tart blueberry, lemon, straw, some grapefruit rind in the finish.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is dominated by artificial lemon cleaner with some minor orange and mango perfume too. Tastes all over the place. Perfumy, dry, tart, stale. Very disappointed. Not my beer.

drfabulous (7950) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 12, 2016
Draught at Pazzos. Hoppy nose upfront like a lot of their beers. Clear orange body. Then the tart apple and lemon sour follows. Good.

3.9
malrubius (2900) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 11, 2016
Bottle from Table and Vine. Pure clear gold with lasting ring and lace. Lemon pixie stix pastry and melon aroma. Tropical fruit melon sweetness with strong grassy grain and citrus spice assertive tart dry grassy finish. Medium light body and very fine carb. Not really what I was in the mood for, but surprisingly delicious.

Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2016
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body and a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. This is a complex good beer.

3.2
crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2016
355ml bottle. Dank aroma with some kettled sour notes. Falvor is crisp and hoppy, sour, it is a bit over-the-top though.
