Notes: Brewed with rye, dark malts, raw wheat, and oats, Transition is the first in a series of seasonally inspired country beers. Fermented with our unique Belgian yeast strain and seasoned for 3 months in oak, Transition has notes of sweet caramel tempered by judicious earthy spice. Naturally conditioned and further developed in the bottle, Transition is characterful and finishes with a hint of tartness and soft acidity. All our Brettanomyces Country beers are lively, and effervescent. Please chill, open cold, and enjoy as they warm in the glass.

Amber pour, slight head not persistent
Big blanket/sour smell

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 3/4 inch head with slightly hazy copper body. Nice lacing at first and down to a ring for the duration. Nose of funk, citrus, grapefruit, and very slight tropical fruit. Taste follows with slightly bitter citrus notes. Quite refreshing. Very nice feel to this. Finish is bitter citrus on the tongue. Overall, I've had plenty of dark sours before, even more pale sours, and even more light in color sours. This falls somewhere in between dark and pale. Nice job, but I think the great majority of Tree House fans won't like this. Not to worry, as the hops that didn't go into this won't go to waste, I'm sure! Cheers to the guys at Tree House!
