Gun Hill Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our modern rendition of an indigenous American style. Brewed with traditional distillers grains, rye, barley, and corn, along with specialty malts. Kettle soured for days, fermented, then aged in Long Island Spirits Bourbon barrels. Deep burnt red in tone with a firm lactic sourness, and rich malt flavors of whiskey-laced mixed berries, burnt sugar, vanilla, and toasted bread with honey.

On-draught @ Gun Hill Brewing.

Caramel colour body. Off-white head.

Wine-like, with mild acidity and traces of acetic acid. Sourness is timid - maybe a 2-3/10 in terms of intensity.

Pale malt and caramalt. Possibly biscuit or even English otter.

Medium-bodied. Smooth. Unrefreshing. Wet. Well-carbonated. Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, or harsh.

Drinkable albeit underwhelming. I wouldn't get this again. Not a good sour, not a bad sour.
