Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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...

If Bud Light had sex with sweet tarts.
Pretty damn good...it’s Lagunitas, after all.

All paramaters a go. The buttermilk of beers. Parenthesis, exponentials, multiplication, division,
addition, subtraction...all there.

A fairly mild and inconspicuous Amer. Wild Ale. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a flute glass. Nicely carbonated, clear gold color with a big delicately bubbly white head and bubbly patches of lacing all over the glass. Aroma is very faint, a little tartness and a little hoppiness. Taste is pleasant enough, but still fairly mild. Very little tartness and funk, some mild maltiness and a little bitterness (from wheat and hops). Mouthfeel is pretty good, nicely carbonated and a little bitterness. Would make a good summer thirst quencher, but nothing that memorable.

Pours a hazy gold color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, hint of lemongrass, hint of spicy hops, hint of yeast, and a slight pale malt. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is an elevated tartness. Tastes of wheat, hint of salt, pale malt, floral hops, hint of spicy hops, and slight bacterial funk. Overall, good blend, appearance, aroma, and good light body.
