Our take on a gueuze-style ale, this intensely tart and funky beer combines three different vintages of our barrel aged sour blonde ale.

2014 vintage. Pours gold with slight orange hue. Low carbonation with 1/4 finger head that dissipates immediately.

Aroma yields baking soda, vinegar, funk, and lemon.

The tartness of this beer is actually pleasant. I get a nice sharp lemony-citrus flavor immediately, followed by a little vinegar. Then i get that baking soda and a finish of funkiness. Not enough carbonation for me.

I will admit, I'm definitely a sour beer drinker, and I picked this one up on a whim. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I have had other sours with this baking soda like flavor, which I'm not a fan of, but the other flavors of this beer are actually pretty good. I pair this with chicken Picatta. It gets an 85 from me which is great for a sour!

A lot of grass / hay on the nose along with the expected stinging citric and a very distant tart vinegar, taste is strong on the dry citrus, doesn't pop upfront with the tart /sourness...it is present, but not overwhelming. Mostly lemon tart. Finishes with some latent acidity, similar to Duchess but not as lingering.
