Notes/Commercial Description:
A sour ale with 2 lbs. of Stone Farms Passion Fruit per Barrel. There is lots of red and rosé wine flavor here, as well as plenty of oak. Some acetic sharpness and lactic acid sourness in the flavor and on the nose. Tropical fruit flavors from the Passion Fruit, and a distinct guava and berry note from the two types of wine barrels make for a distinctive, intensely fruity beer.

Reason be Damned (Aged in Red Wine Barrels):

The pairing of Belgian beer and some wine barrel tempering makes for a fantastic treat for the senses. The palate and nose have a lot going on here coming from the natural complexity of both wine and Belgian beers. Tons of fruits: apple, lemon, grape, cherry with yeast, pepper, bread and oak. Some pleasant tartness and astringency. Fairly light and a surprisingly easy drinker.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope I have the chance to have it again!

Serving type: on-tap
