Outstanding
Notes: A dark sour, aged for 2 years in oak and an additional 2 years in stainless with 1.2 lbs of local currants per gallon. Currant Affair had a mixed fermentation with Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and a traditional ale yeast. Deep red with raisin, chocolate and sour cherries in the aroma, it’s tart and spicy with complex flavors of stone fruit and brown sugar. Look for this on draft at a specialty event near you.

Had this one on tap, loved the smell. Didn't like the currant bitter taste.
