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.

Aroma is citrus, spices and complex funk. The flavor is citrus, complex tropical fruit funk, mild lactic notes, malts and a mix of bitter and sour/tart finish.

Dogbrick (13389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2016
On draught at Brave Horse Tavern. The beer pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a dense film. Sticky strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of tart citrus, melon, herbal hops and malt. The finish is mildly sour and hoppy with a grapefruit and apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Draft at the Irish Pol. Hazy orangish gold pour with a good amount of white foam that sheeted the glass. Lots of hops. Lots of sour. Not sure if the two are playing together well. Overly carbonated. Feels like a dry-hopped apple cider. Not working for me.

On tap at bottle bar. Pours light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, citrus, over ripe tropical fruits, some vinegar, and some earth funk. has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and semi dry, semi sour yet semi bitter, long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty hybrid between sour and IPA.

AWISLguy (3234) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2016
12oz bottle from Discount in Waukesha, shared with bananabi11. Orangey yellow pour with an off-white head. Big brett-y ipa nose. Nice, hoppy, candy sweet & funky. Citrus. Nice! Taste is more flat champagne, candy, brett. It is tastier than that, but not by much. Shrug? Interesting, but not that good. 13.2

shigadeyo (3759) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2016
UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Mouthwatering hoppy aroma (not over the top in any specific way, but really appetizing nonetheless), whiyr wine, slightly acidic; golden color, chill haze, fast carbonation bubbles racing to the surface, fluffy lasting off white head; rally quick hit of sweet, then nicely tangy with lots of white grapefruit juice, really great acidity, the dry hooing comes through nicely, slightly tart, slightly sweet in the finish and leavesy miuthbalightly watering and wanting more; light medium body, smooth, soft on the palate; delicious... damn good, actually, leaves my mouth happy!

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.
