Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
2014 World Beer Cup Silver Medalist for experimental beer.

We wanted to make a different harvest ale besides a fresh hop IPA so we decided to do something strange. This is a sour ale fermented on grapes from The Vineyard at Hershey. We then dry hopped it with locally grown Cascade hops from South Mountain Hops and also Centennial hops. The result is a blush colored sour ale with an INCREDIBLE aroma. Enjoy!

Pour is. Watermellon pink with a bubbly very light pink head. Nose is a bit metallic, berry fruits, faint touch of lactic, subtle grassy hops to balance. Taste also has a metallic hint, flavors are nice but subdued. Fruity passion fruit, subtle Brett and some grassy hay like hops. Sourness is moderate, fairly dry finish with a balanced carb and soft light feel.
