What the brewers say

Mixed-culture sour ale with pineapple and blueberry.

What our panel thought

Moderate leathery funk up front. Notes of blackberry and blueberry with a note of acidity. Light floral and vanilla. Hint of pineapple as it warms. Moderate acidity is balanced with a note of earth funk and a slight blueberry sweetness. The pineapple tartness doubles down on the acidity of the fermentation. Fairly puckering.

What our editors thought

On the nose, a woody, meaty, leathery note with pineapple and blueberry undertones offers a weird entry, but the flavor is another story. On the sip, a general berry note pushes forward with an intense sharpness and a touch of pineapple brightness. The acid is the star of the show, and the fruit can’t seem to grab the spotlight.
