Notes/Commercial Description:
Released in honor of this momentous occasion, Mellow Gold rises from the CBC Barrel Cellar. An American wild ale, it is influenced by the young, unblended lambic beers of Belgium.

Pale and hazy gold in color, fermentation and aging took place in a quartet of oak barrels historically used in the production of our fruited sour beers Kriek du Cambridge and Rose de Cambridge. As these barrels were already inoculated with the microorganisms necessary for sour ale production, this beer cannot be said to have been fermented spontaneously, but no brewer’s yeast (S.cerevisiae) was added. In the space of one year’s time a soft acidity and complex yet subtle funk developed, and these four barrels were blended together in our new little 8-barrel tank now used exclusively for Barrel Cellar beers.

A-Pours a hazy straw color. Thin head bubbles away to nearly nothing. Hard to note lacing due to sample size.

S-Funky yet bright and vibrant with hints of sour, pale fruits. There is also a subtle sweetness as well.

T-An apt name for this beer. Its relatively mellow but still incredibly complex. Wet, soggy wood and light dustiness meet with tart, Gueuze-like funk. Then it finishes with more sour fruit and a crisp, crackery malt.

M-Light, tingly, prickly and drinkable. Tartness sticks to my lips. Refreshing.

O/D-A neat sour brew that is very pleasing and quite agreeable. Complex, tart but forgiving in the finish. A cool brew!

Serving type: on-tap
