This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The Last Word is our first installment in the "Dealer's Choice" series. The Last Word is a tart golden ale brewed with key lime, wintergreen, and wormwood, a nod to an illicit Prohibition-era tipple of the same name. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at The Aviary in Chicago.

Bright orange with white foam and a little bit of lace around the edges.

Honey and lime zest in the aroma, subdued but really nice.

Taste is nicely tart with some lime juice and honey graham flavors that segue into a dry finish with a hint of dry botanicals. Juicy up front with a pleasant lime tartness, zippy feel. Effervescent and balanced, complex complimentary blend of ingredients. Overall a success, I'd drink more of this anytime. (442 characters)

Deep gold in color with a light haziness. No head is present but carbonation bubbles pop up from within the depths. Aroma is an odd conglomeration of lime and mint. The taste is pleasantly sour lactic acid, lime,and mint along with some light malt. The mouth is heavily carbonated,tart, and yet the mint and lime tingle your tastebuds in an oddly refreshing way. Truly a unique experience. It definitely improves as it warms. (431 characters)

A: Amber, reddish color; no head
S: Not a strong nose on this beer; hint of sweet-tart candies
M: Medium body, smooth
T: This is a sour beer that is cut with delicious flavors of apple, apricot, and lime. There are also hints of cinnamon, mint, and grape skin. (262 characters)

A little on the flat side and almost tastes more like a tart cider than a wild ale. Plenty of apple, a little lime, dried apricot and vanilla. Some rye-type spice and a little tang from the malts.

Not much aroma to speak of, just somewhat bright and tart. Tasty, but unremarkable. (281 characters)
