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.

Aunt Sally is in the totally-out-there realm, a sour that has all sorts of other things going for it. Lemons are most distinct in the aroma but there’s also a damp basement and how about limes, too. Taste is sour but only a mild bit of tongue curling results. There’s a dash of salt in here, too. Finish is a little dry then a lot dry and a little oaky. Fun and different and, I think, worth pouring again on a hot summer afternoon.

Bottle. Light bread for the malt, light to moderate perfume for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with passion fruit and melon in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic and sour, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. A pretty neat combination of a sweet fruity aroma with a sour and biting flavor in this Sour Ale.

Flaska. Klar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter av övermogna krusbär och citrus. Smakinslag av citrus, krusbär, vitpeppar och jord. Syrlig avslutning. Torr munkänsla.

Big bright orange grapefruit nose. A towering thick white head with a crazy amount of lacing. Flavor is extreme lemon and grapefruit Think Lemonheads soaked in grapefruit juice. Tart but still reasonable. Not quite puckering. Definitely quenching. Sort of like NOS energy drink without the aggressive carbonation. Still, not a fan of the sours.

Appearance: clear pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: lemon zest, lacto sour, light funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high tart, low bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry tart finish. (3/5) A pretty plain lacto sour, without much complexity or depth. Think Jolly Ranchers or Flintstones vitamins, except not quite as sweet. I’m getting really, really tired of these bandwagon kettle sours. (12/20)

Really plain dry tart. Not the greatest of the style, and not my favorite style.
