Sun King Brewing Party Energy

What the brewers say

Barrel-aged golden sour ale with funky pineapple and citrus character.

What our panel thought

Delicate aroma: rose hips, stone fruit, apricot, pureed pear. Lively, prickly sip—chalky-tart then sweet and bitter—tasting of peach, apricot. Bitterness seems spiky and out of place, with acid a touch out of balance. Warming, medicinal impression in finish. Pithy citrus lingers. Crisp, tart, dry.

What our editors thought

Buzzing tropical-fruit-soda nose suggests a long lost Fanta flavor spiked with Mountain Dew. The sip is less sweet, opting for Brett-forward dry herbal notes, with a bit of fruit-juiciness for good measure.
