What the brewers say

“A Flanders inspired reddish-brown, session sour ale with subtle notes of raspberries. Pairs well with seasoned sour drinkers or those new to the style.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant fruity, tart aromas, with tart cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. The malt has some sweetness, with biscuit, caramel, bread crust, and very subtle coffee (but not burnt) notes, as well as some dried figs or currants. Low earthy hops, and the acidity comes through clean with a touch of lemon.”

Flavor: “The berry fruitiness is pleasant up front, complemented with a nice malt complexity that includes bread crust, biscuit, and light toast. The moderate berry flavors are accentuated with a touch of Lacto and salt, nuts, and raisin. The malt backbone balances the fruit and tartness, which all linger just enough to remember the flavor.”

Overall: “This is a slightly Lacto fruit sour with hints of nutty and toasty flavors. It’s very drinkable, with a nice crispness that’s smooth and well balanced as you parse out all the complexity of this beer. Very interesting and well executed, even while taking a lot of risk with the malt, fruit, and tartness. Great beer!”
