With the inmates running the asylum, the brewers aprehensively back away and allow the bar frontmen to take the helm. Zac and Steve begin with a kettle-soured kolsch-style beer and get a little wacky with infusions of kiwi and strawberry because, well... why not?

The summer beer pours with a murky mauve, laced with a heavy pectin haze. Its bright aromatics tease the nose with those strong fruit nuances and its backdrop of lime-like sourness. But to taste, its the soft grain sweetness of the Kolsch that greets the tongue first, equipped with its own soft floral hops and estery sweetness.

And with the sweetness fading fast, the palate is refreshed with the essence of fruit left behind. While sour green apple, lime, lemon and under-ripened berry all play delicately on the tongue; it's the tangy strawberry and tropical kiwi flavors that garner much of the beer's character, and with that clean lactic sourness and its refreshing acidity.

Clean, crisp and highly refreshing, the medium-light beer exits the palate with a dainty herbal bitterness from hops, a faint residually sweet tack, and an acute pectin bite that's seemingly of fruit seed and skin. Its this balance that leaves lasting memory, long after the ale's clean finish is awash with fruit essence in aftertaste.
