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.

DOB: 7/11/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 28B Mixed-Fermentation Sour Beer (base style: 18B American Pale Ale[?])

AROMA: Moderately strong American hop presence of citrus and tropical fruits, some grassiness. No sour aroma. Malt present, but evokes no sweetness. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Mostly clear shade of yellow (2-5 SRM). Large white froth retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Base palette has the making of an APA: hoppy flavor and moderate bitterness. Hops have a citrusy taste along with a candy-like sweetness. The malt offers balance, but little specialty character. Sourness is rather subtle; mostly in the background throughout with slight tartness on the finish. Dry finish; clean acidity. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing with clean aftertaste. Feels much lighter than 5.7% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Marketed as a sour ale, this is better considered an APA with a tang. Interesting, but not amazing. 7/10

Draught @ Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Pours nearly clear straw with stable white head. Clear aroma of hops and grass, with pronounced notes of malt and estery touches. Vinous flavour with fruity, hoppy and estery notes and rather mild touches of malt. Acidic aftertaste with estery notes. Looks and smells like an IPA, tastes like a Sour Ale. A decent elderly lady, but I don’t think I would have her visiting me every day.

Bottle. Pale gold with a white head. Aroma of oranges, mango, a little Dubbin, lemon washing-up liquid. Thin, really quite watery. Sweet and slightly tart apricots, orange that is indeed chewable vitamin-like, long left over lemon juice. A bit acid as well as bitter at the end. Didn’t do a lot for me.

Surprised to not have rated this one before, but glad to have a new one to rate anyway. This one has a nice slightly ball stenchy gym bag smell with some light floral piney fringes. The appearance is a classic clear cloud looking thing that looks like 90% of beers to some extent. The taste is a smooth, extremely, dangerously drinkable mix of basic pale ale smoove hopz and a slight sour tang that keeps it from getting too boring. Not the sexiest or most bizarro sour out there but usually cheapish and around so it serves a purpose. Good for a lonely Thursday waiting for your boo boo to finally return by doing doing a mini SAW movie marathon and blaring some peak 2007 Britney apparently.

Funknmilla (751) - WAYNE, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2017 12oz bottle. Straw/gold with a little foam. Some light citrus hops on the sniff that intensifies as it sits in the glass. Tangy on the tongue with the mild hops mixing in. This is the offspring of a sour and a pale ale, strange but good? Goes well with a beef empanada!

Senap (750) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2017
Ordentligt med syra! Otroligt frisk och smakrik. En öl som sticker ut! Inte för alla och alla tillfällen - men när det är rätt så är den toppen!

PhillyBeer2112 (2919) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Pretty unique. Big dry-hopped nose has a good profile, citrus, flowers, tropical fruit. Flavor focused more on the sour, semi-sweet malts (so more sour than sweet really) with floral hops skirting the edges, lighter bitterness at the finish. Weird but enjoyable.

maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle at Len in Kyoto. Tart nose, (Mosaic hops?), and a bit weedy. Medium old color, nice fluffy white head. Tropical fruit initial flavor, some mango, and thick citrus. Some stone fruit in the mix, along with moderate sourness.. Medium body (in fact, a bit chewy). Very pleasant.
