Notes/Commercial Description:
Strong blond beers were aged in fresh Chardonnay barrels for three months and then additionally aged with dried Adriatic white figs and Spanish lemon peel. Aromas of sweet malts, figs, raisins and citrus zest greet you in the nose. Hints of Chardonnay grapes, lemon peel and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to crisp lemon sharpness in the finish that will leave a lingering sweetness on the tongue.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

on tap at the brewery, Portland

Shiny gold with snowy film.
White balsamic nose with fruity undertones.
Lemon, white grape, spiced golden sultana chutney, tart zestiness, more white vinegar bite, a chardonnay edge and grapefruit sorbet ending.
Lemon curd hard candy (!) finish and dry linger.
Crisp, dry, no heat at all.

Complex, subtle, balanced, and nuanced. Made to marry with goats’ cheese. Opens well, amazingly intricate, rewards revisits.

Probably the best American sour I’ve tasted.

Serving type: on-tap
