What the brewers say

“A tart wheat ale brewed with apricots and peaches.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Starts with a unique “crushed SweeTarts” aroma up front with a mix of funky esters in the back. There’s a strong juicy lemon acidity from the Lacto funk that lingers nicely with the ripe, juicy stone-fruit notes. Hints of white bread toast from the malt contribute to the complexity.”

Flavor: “Strong citrus sourness, with bright acidity and some fruity sweetness. The juicy peach and apricot open up the flavor, followed quickly by tart lemon juice. The acidity takes over for a brief second, allowing the cereal malt quality to come back in the dry finish.”

Overall: “This is a complex and distinctly tart kettle sour with subdued fruit overall, but it’s a decent beer that allows the sourness to be the focal point. The acidity is a bit dominant and masks a lot of the other characteristics, but it’s a delicious and refreshing kettle-sour example.”
