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.

Growler fill (discounted) from Albertsons. Pours out very vibrant, big, full, fluffy head. Aroma is very mild yeasty, Belgian pale. Taste gets a bit sweeter, candy, Sweet-Tart sweet and sour at the same time. No big pucker here, a bit tart, but not overdone. Entry level sour.

Surprised that they used the term "chewable flavored vitamins" to describe this beer. Not sure what chewable flavored means, but I get what they were going for and its not a positive flavor in a beer. Aroma was ok. Tart and tangy with sour grains, notes of lemon and yeast. Pour was a hazy medium gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was slightly tart with yeast and sour grains dominating. Weird off flavor in the finish. The hops actually played well with the lacto and sourness which isn’t easy to do. Nice carbonation. An ok beer but nothing special.

from a growler into a pint glass. tangy aroma. whiteish color with little head. Mouthfeel is moderate to light and krispy. Taste is sweet tart candy and that damn Lagunitas house yeast that I really don’t like. The good, it’s a solid tangy beer that was well done for what it is, and you can drink a decent amount of it; and unlike most other Lagunitas beers, it wasn’t too sweet. The bad, it’s not amazing, just solid. But I’d drink it again from time to time.

The whole dry-hopped Sour thing going on right now has led to the creation of some delightfully odd brews. Aunt Sally is one of them. It sure doesn’t smell like your typical Sour. Dry-hopping has given this beer a floral, citrusy nose. You’d think this could be any other West Coast ale if you were exposed to this beer in a blind tasting. Er, smelling. The flavor is totally different than what you’d expect. The hops are still assertive but the flavor has a huge sour cherry flavor... as promised. This beer has a texture as dry as an IPA but with the tangy, candy-like flavors of a fruity Sour. One the descriptions Lagunitas has used is chewable vitamins. Weird as it sounds, that’s actually pretty accurate. It’s tastier than it sounds too. This one’s strange, but also really nice.

nearbeer (5717) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pint on tap. Clear burnt orange-golden with a thin cream on top. Nose is resin, citrus zest, caramel and a touch of something sour. Tastes pretty much the same. A nice IPA, but not much of a sour. Light-medium body has a nice balance and medium carbonation.

3.5
ttutony (961) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Golden color with a white head. Floral/citrus hop aroma. Hop bitterness makes its presence note, sourness is more subdued. Interesting combo of hop bitterness and slightly fruity sourness.

3.5
BuckeyeBoy (9218) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Albertson’s pours out a pale straw color topped with a white head. nose is pine citrus hops some lemon zest tart notes a little wet wheat. Taste is more of the citrus hops combo with the tart sour notes.

3.6
Bule (2314) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Redwood Cafe. Pours a golden color with a bit of head. Fruity tartness. Apple, and some citrus. Mild funk.
