Ichigo Highway is a collaborative beer that we created with Hangar 24 Brewing from Redlands, CA. The base style is a sessionable sour red ale that we aged in oak barrels along with a whopping amount of strawberries, most of which were picked from the fields besides Hangar 24s brewery. Aged for approximately 8 months, this beer has developed a pleasant funk and a delightful acidity that is balanced by the intensely sweet aroma and flavor of the strawberries as well as a unique dryness achieved by using a sake yeast along with our house strain along with souring bacteria. Available in November. 5.5% ABV, Best enjoyed fresh due to the fleeting aroma and flavor of the strawberries

Yikes. pours clear yellow no head no lacing. Aroma of strawberries and armpit. A lot of armpit. Taste is sour with no hints of the red wine barrels or the strawberry. Palate is average I wouldve liked it livelier. This is not to my liking.

VsXsV (4395) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. Hazy, yeasty brown liquid with small to medium white head . Looks like coffee with milk. Aroma of lemon, vinegar, wood, light grain and apple skin. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of raspberries, lemon and wood. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice!

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a very hazy, dark golden amber color with tangerine edges and a half finger off-white head that quickly settles into a very thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Heavy yeast sediment floating around. Funky, vinous aroma with light fruit, prominent phenols/bandaid along with a strong jammy strawberry presence. Slightly creamy with dry oak, musty brett, strawberry and cream but the phenols are really odd. Still smells pretty good though. Tart, sour and funky with a strong tart berry flavor and again, an unpleasant phenol character that is very potent in the finish. Slightly creamy with dry, toasted oak and musty bugs followed by bandaid and acidic tartness. Harsh solvent nail polish/acetone in finish which really hurts the drinkability of this beer a lot.

750 ml bottle shared with a friend. Murky red/orange with off-white head. Aromas of strawberries, light vinegar, subtle funk. Tastes of strawberries, light vinegar, tart acidic notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Very delicious with lots of strawberries still present.

Smells good, like sour strawberry candy. Very tart strawberry taste, like eating the top. Good mouthfeel for a sour.
