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.

A - This is different than any beer I've had. It's got a hue that I'm not used to seeing. Almost reminds me of De Garde Imperial Plum Bu. Really inviting.

S - Light tartness, like fruit, extremely refreshing smelling. Smells like something I could just crush.

T - Follows up the nose. You get a nice sourness, certainly nothing insane. The fruit is in there for a nice contrast from a lot of the beers in this style. Really on point.

M - This is the best part about this. It's so refreshing, drinkable, and just awesome. The fruit balances the sourness and it melds into something great.

O - I haven't had too many Carton beers, but this is definitely one of, if not the best. Boat is awesome as well. Would definitely recommend this batch. Perfect for a nice summer day.
