COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2016 Ambassadors of Sour Release #1: Quite Something

Quite Something is a golden sour beer aged in French Bordeaux wine barrels. Fermented with a collection of special microorganisms, this beer presents subtle notes of oak with nuances of crisp grapes and fresh berries. Complex and refined, these flavors dance somewhere between beer and wine.

750 ml red waxed bottle shared. From a split Ambassadors of Sour 2016 membership with a friend, thanks Ed! Slightly hazy golden yellow with off-white head. Aromas of funk, cheese, wine, stone fruit. Tastes of stone fruit, funk, wine, tart acidic notes, light floral and hay. Light body with a dry and puckering sour finish. Quite fantastic.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting at Josh’s house in Windsor on 12/19. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a nice foggy golden orange with a thin layer of white head that disappears quickly without any lacing. The aroma is sour, tart, lovely oaky, full of wine and berries, and just so balanced. This is tart, crisp, and fantastic. The flavor is just as good. Light stone fruits, a hint of oaky wine, and a beautiful fresh berry rounds it out. It’s tart, crisp, clean, and just everything I want in a sour. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a beautiful carbonation and a lingering mouth-wateringly sour fruitiness that lasts forever. This is fucking awesome. This beer is quite something.

750 ml. 2015 red wax. Hazy yellow. Aroma is sour stone fruit. Taste is sour candy, lemon and apricot. A bit of butter. Strong acidity on the finish.
