Springdale Beer Co. Desert Solitaire
What the brewers say
"Golden sour brewed with rye and spelt, aged in red and white wine barrels."
What our panel thought
"Lemon and vanilla on the nose, a touch of oak, white bread; overall pretty subdued. Medium sweetness, mild but present funk barely pushing through; more notes of lemon, peach, orange, strawberry. Some light acetone and acetic acid character."
What our editors thought
"Low-key nose with subtle mixed-fermentation notes of lemon and linen, braced by faint wine. On the sip, a tropical-fruit and white-wine-grape burst of flavor and acidity."
