What the brewers say

“This beer is a blend of both Brett barrels and sour barrels, dry hopped with a bouquet of American hops to accentuate the tropical and citrusy profile of our wild yeast.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Cloves, pine-tree pitch, grapefruit zest, and hops are evident but not bold. Wood, black pepper, grapefruit, and lemon-peel notes. Slight dank, weed aroma in the hops and a fun phenolic yeast character.”

Flavor: “Moderate lactic acidity fades quickly into an herbal/lemony hops finish with a touch of grapefruit. Lots of hops flavor, but very slight hops bitterness. Light malt sweetness could use a little more body to support the acid. Linger has a spicy salsa-like note.”

Overall: “A spicy, sour, and lemon beer that is very smooth tasting after the initial bite of sour. Obviously hopped but not in a way that brings them out as a novelty beer. A great example of a light touch, not trying to win the pageant with zany hops. Very clean sourness and acidity in balance with hop flavors. Relatively mild wild character paired with the light touch on hops makes this easy to enjoy.”
