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.

pleasantly surprised about how tasty and altogether great this brew is. sour and tangy yet not very sour and gratefully not fruity and sour. more rot gut whiskey sour now that combined with the really nice pine makes for something special. tangy and a little sticky i like it just slightly cool. almost a session sipper. demonstrative indeed and a must try on the road to aficionado-dom.

6/4/17 (Chicago) 12 oz. Bottle poured into large beer mug. Clear dark golden yellow pour, mild carbonation, puff light white head with mild lacing. Yeast, malt, hoppy aroma. Taste consistent with aroma, sour and tart, pleasurable. Light body and mouth feel, easy drinking. Overall good offering.

Pours amber with substantial white head. Bitter aroma, unpleasant taste. I was expecting something different, but did not find it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2017
On tap at ISO: Beer. Pours a softly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big bright citrus, musk, a bit of grapefruit on the nose. Medium bodied, tangy and a bit of salinity. Tart and bright with some earthy lemon, preserved lemon, wheat, tartness. Soft tangy quality, malt and a bit of lingering acidity. Very tasty stuff. Much more interesting than I would have thought.

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

beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 23, 2017
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

Bif (2343) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2017
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.

3.7
theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 16, 2017
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. Haven’t 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.
