Notes: Magic Lantern is a standard offering with rotating fruits. The base is 100% wheat, fermented with unisolated coolship-caught microbes. Nearly all of the sourness comes only from the fruit, so acidity will range from mid to high. Himalayan pink sea salt adds a slight, balanced salinity, and completely changes the experience of the beer.

L: A cool but nonetheless peach hue. Opaque and smooth. Beautiful to gawk at. Head vanishes immediately.

S: More than lactic - nearly gut sour.
A soft sweet fruit I cannot identify.

T: Aw. So salty. More than a Gose the salt and sourness is not for the faint of heart so to speak. I will not be able to finish this beer.

F: Medium body and carbonation. Fine but thick considering all the salt and sour the palate must endure!

O: Not my thing and I’ve had some sours.
