Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

2014 World Beer Cup Silver Medalist for experimental beer.

We wanted to make a different harvest ale besides a fresh hop IPA so we decided to do something strange. This is a sour ale fermented on grapes from The Vineyard at Hershey. We then dry hopped it with locally grown Cascade hops from South Mountain Hops and also Centennial hops. The result is a blush colored sour ale with an INCREDIBLE aroma. Enjoy!

First had: on tap at PB

Bright fuschia color with a slight chill haze, and a finger or so of bubbly white head that soon shrank to a thin ringlet; minimal lacing. Nice lacto tartness in the nose right up front, vinous, with notes of floral hops and cobwebby funk. Taste was similar, nice snap of tartness up front, but never overpowering, red wine and raspberries, with some nicely balancing candy sweetness, floral hops with a slight lemony sensation, subtle notes of grain husks and cobwebs. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Overall a nicely crafted brew.
