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.

decent, didn't do it for me but I do like the effort to get different styles out to the people. Liked it up front but the finish lingered a bit too long.

Sixteen ounce can shared by Ron - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy faint and light reddish orange with a thin white head which fades rapidly to the rim leaving spots of lace.

N: Fruity with tart wheaty and malty notes.

T: Mostly tart wheat with fruit (mulberries) like a blackberry and some lemony citrus.

M: Light body and light carbonation. Finishes wheaty and tart.

O: A nice light Berliner Weisse.

Thanks to Thebrewracho for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours a hazy light orange-red with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, berry, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour berry and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.

Serving type: can.
