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.

This beer is an excellent sour. I feel Carton is really stepping up there game and have some fantastic brews. If you like sours this is a very good beer with a kinda citrus twist. Overall if they canned this, I would buy it!

Bottom Line: Enjoyable beer.

A: A nice hazy yellow in color, you can see the bubbles from the carbonation in the beer so there is a little transparency, started off with a little white head at the top that turned into a crown very quickly, not to much lacing was visible.

S: Wheat, Lemon, some hint of grapes and apples as well, sour note is present throughout.

T:The sourness hit me on the first sip, lots of wheat and lemon, and the sour is super present on the the palate, slight hints of apples on the tail end.

M: Light/Medium bodied, a good amount of carbonation.

O: Was not a fan of this brew, but I would say it wasn't terrible, I guess I am not a fan of sour beers, not to hard to drink but just something I didn't enjoy.
