Burial Beer Co The Fortress of Immaculate Thought

What the brewers say

Barrel-aged golden sour with blueberries. Find Beaujolais nouveau, dried raspberries, mixed-berry smoothie, a waft of Blueberry Kush.

What our panel thought

An inviting nose of sweet raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, currant aromas with an underlying funk and barrel character. Gentle blueberry flavor complements the lemon, leather, and horse-blanket funk, and the barrel backs it up. Tartness and acidity create a wine-like sharpness that complements the fruity funk.

What our editors thought

Juicy, rich blueberry, spicy currant, plus a bit of nutty Noyaux in the background. The foreground of the sip balances a lush, luxurious round fruit character with a quick acid hit, but the background fills out the story with softer vanilla and caramel notes and a light lingering earthy funk, for a compelling balance.
