Had this on-tap at the Brick Store Pub awhile ago. Reviewing from notes. My understanding is that this is a blend of the brown ale mixed with wheat wort and then aged in barrels. In a sense then, this is more of a sourmash beer, similar to a couple of other ones that I've had. I have to say, though, this one delivers and takes things a bit further. Pours a beautiful chestnut color with nice clarity- it has a glow to it. Slight head, but for what the beer is, that seems excusable. Very tart with lactic and brett notes in the nose. Fresh and appetizing, the aromas definitely invite you to dive in. Some spiciness in the finish. It's been said that these wheat sourmash beers are America's version of a Beriner Weiss, and there is a lot of truth to that. It certainly shares some characteristics with one and perhaps that's even a better classification than an American sour. The taste is similar to the smell. Just the right amount of zesty fruit, light spice, and tartness. Crisp and very quenching. I certainly enjoyed this.
