BEER INFO

Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This trip starts as many do on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the tippy, discussing grill cleaning, spring, cherry blossoms and the flavors that coincide with the transition from spring rain to summer sun. Talk makes its way around the circle to Jeremy who offers, "Cherry and lime kind of kick ass together." The evolution from that declaration to Rickey was a short one. Sourness from wild fermentation pulls taught against the heady juiciness of the fruit, with a light finishing touch of juniper berries stitching it together. Drink Rickey because blossoms turn to fruit.

Looks like an ipa with a pink hue. Carbonation and complex like an ipa but replace the hops with sour cherry and lime. Not too high acid. Little more body then my current fave, which is Wild Beer Modus Operandi.

Color of rose wine.
Funk, lemon, lime.
Cherry and lime well blended. Lemon rind some light grain backs it up
No residual sweetness. Tart not sour. High carbonation. Sour doesn't linger long

2016 batch. I liked it. 7% holy shit i cant tell.
