Notes / Commercial Description:
MONKEY CHASED THE WEASEL
Sour Ale
ABV: 3.9% | IBU: Sour | SRM: Ojo de Gallo

The backyard of our brewery has a mulberry tree that drops its fruit in the first days of summer. We moved into our building during early summer 2011, tracking a bright purple path through our new home with every laden step. It was then we decided: if mulberry was going to get that deep into the brewery, it probably should get into a beer as well. Stealing a process from Berliners, we let the lactics in a wheated mash sour up to a green apple/lemon level, accentuating the bright side of the mulberry profile. Meant for quaffing when there is no reason to avoid direct sunlight on balmy summer days, drink Monkey Chased The Weasel because there is more sun than moon at the top.

Golden straw with a pinkish hue to it. Tons of active carbonation, thin light pink head fades fast and leaves no lacing. Tart in the nose. Lemon, sour apple, berry and a little funk. Tart on the taste, lemon, sour apple, and a hint of mulberry in the finish. Straight forward but great. Sharp carbonation carries that tart flavor and gives a highly carbonated feel all the way through the finish and some dryness at the end. Great beer for the style with a nice twist with the mulberry.
