Notes/Commercial Description:
MONKEY CHASED THE WEASEL
Sour Ale
ABV: 3.9% | IBU: Sour | SRM: Ojo de Gallo

The backyard of our brewery has a mulberry tree that drops its fruit in the first days of summer. We moved into our building during early summer 2011, tracking a bright purple path through our new home with every laden step. It was then we decided: if mulberry was going to get that deep into the brewery, it probably should get into a beer as well. Stealing a process from Berliners, we let the lactics in a wheated mash sour up to a green apple/lemon level, accentuating the bright side of the mulberry profile. Meant for quaffing when there is no reason to avoid direct sunlight on balmy summer days, drink Monkey Chased The Weasel because there is more sun than moon at the top.

Had a glass at Good Beer in the East Village. This was a pleasant surprise. I haven't tried many good American-made Berliners, usually they're all bite, without much flavor. This beer, however, had a light creamy malt character with touches of fruit in addition to the well-balanced tart bike. Very cool beer. I hope to find more of this in the summer.

The beer comes in a clear pale yellow.

The aroma has some apple, lots of tartness, some wheat, and lemon.

The flavor follows with apple and lemon tartness, some tartness, a bit of funk in there as well. The mouthfeel is thin, but in general quite refreshing.

The beer is a bit light on flavor, has a tartness of apple cider, but also some funk and wheat of a Berliner weiss.

Served on-tap at Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a hazy pale straw yellow in color with some light amounts of slow visible carbonation with some hints of golden yellow + lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to to a small patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sourness with notes of citrus/lemon and hints of wheat + light fruit (granny smith apple).

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of sour wheat with light notes of citrus/lemon and granny smith apple. Some light notes of lactic acid tartness/sourness which linger in the finish.

M: Light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink and very refreshing on a hot summer afternoon/evening. I really enjoy this one and could really see myself enjoying quite a few of these. Definitely sessionable.
