Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Sarlacc83 on 11-07-2012

CHANDELLE represents a perfect balance of fruit and funk, marrying the bright flavors of Golden Sweet apricots with the oak-aged complexity of sour beer. It begins as a blonde ale brewed with both malted and unmalted wheat, a blank canvas which is laid down in freshly emptied white wine barrels and topped off with our house souring culture. Over the course of a year these yeast and bacteria transform the liquid, bringing forth a beer that is both deeply funky and refreshingly sour. The barrels are then blended back together just before the final addition- a generous helping of fresh apricots plucked from Blossom Bluff Orchards in Central California. The tart flavors and aromas of the fresh fruit perfectly balance the acidic, bracingly sour base developed in the barrel.

Poured from bottle into snifter

A: Very light yellow with a white head

S: a little funky

T: Starts extremely sour, then come the apricots with almost a GOSE (salty) taste. The end is very interesting as the wheat after-taste kicks in.

Mouthfeel: very acidic, not in a lactic way. pucker up!

Overall: This is a super complex sour as opposed to the other heavy hitter type sours that are a little one dimensional. Very complex but not my favorite tastes.
