Allusion Brewing Fourth Wall
What the brewers say
"Red Berry Sour Ale. This Sour Ale was brewed with a large amount of your favorite Sour then Sweet Candies. Taste and aroma of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry form the candies with a sweet and tart finish."
What our panel thought
"Vibrant electric orange color. Aroma of tart lemon and sweet melon with low amounts of malt aroma that lend a Saturday morning cereal quality to the beer. Watermelon and blackberry in the aroma. Sweet at the start, in a pleasant way that complements the restrained tartness well. The flavor profile is a balance of sweet and sour with neither overpowering the other. Finishes quite dry with a good aftertaste or memory of hard candy sucked into oblivion."
What our editors thought
"Faint, and vaguely synthetic green apple and raspberry aroma leads into a bracing acidity and sweetness in the sip that quickly takes the volume from one to ten. Despite the shocking fruit notes, a tannic body builds a fullness in the sip. Acidity lingers with the candy fruit notes, in the most attractive way possible."
