A Unique Dry-Hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale. We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what's the difference? It's sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally's out there, You know who you are...

love this one, awesomely clean on the lacto souring, not too acidic to pound on, well hopped and very modern with the dry hop, effervescent and easy drinking, always fresh tasting, and a cool base beer for fruits and herbs and stuff, although i think they left that area a little bit unexplored despite there being some fun variants of this. this was another one from these guys that was a little ahead of its time, but what a cool release for a national brewery. looks basic, golden, clearish, fizzy. the nose is fruity from the dry hop, a lemon thing from the bacteria and notes of tangerine, lemongrass, watermelon sour warhead candy, a little soft earthy wheat but dry and not malty, minerals, wholly mouthwatering. the hops have a little bitterness which i like, all at the end, herbal as much as fruity now, lemon zest and pith for sure, maybe green apple and gooseberry, tart plum even, its sort of exotic and unfamiliar, but like, also kind of citra forward and known, weird what the acidity does to these hops, its real cool, a lemon lime soda layer, the cereals of the grain base, light spiciness, candy sourness, very juicy and vibrant and unique, the minimal ingredients still yield complexity in flavor and texture. its spritzy like soda, lighter medium bodied, i can feel some wheat, and its best when its frosty cold to me. id love this with like lime and gin botanicals, seems natural, but also like mango and papaya and coconut, maybe salt and pepper even, how cool would that be? it seems ready to be played with, but its delicious like this too. impressive quick sour, the quality smokes so many others out there...

Tart, smooth and modestly sour. This is my favorite beer by a large margin. I bought a full size keg when they discontinued Sally and only regret not buying two...

A nice mild sour for those not inclined to the funkier variety of sour beers. Pale in color with a flat head. Peachy nose with a hint of honeysuckle. Other stone fruits with a flowery palate. Nice follow through in the aftertaste.

Slightly hazy light gold with short head. Soft aromas of tropical fruit, lemon candy, a little bread. Flavor is moderately tart, with subtle peach, pear, lemon, tropical, green apple, and light bready or crackery malt. There's a soft, almost warm sweetness that's really nice. Sharp carbonation, medium mouthfeel. It somehow doesn't strike me as the most refreshing sour, but it's very nicely balanced and really good.
