Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: largadeer on 06-24-2011

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.

Poured from a cork and cage 750l bottle into a tulip glass. 2013 project on the label.

Pours a deep golden straw color with fizzy head that dissipates rather quickly. Minimal lacing detected, which is characteristic of a sour style, and has very little lacing present, again, characteristic of the style.

Smells of lactobacillus, hearty oak barrels, wet vagina, and sweet malt. I get the year scent on eaxh and every transaction. It can't compete with the above.

Tastes of dry white wine, lactobacillus sour, sweet grapes, natural yeast, barrel aging.

Seek this out and drink it...drink one and age one. I paid $32 for one bottle and it was worth it. Sour sour sour tits.
