IBU 68 IBU
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can
Stats above taken from the brewery can.
Dark orange/amber with an off-white head.
Wild, sour berry with a mix of lemon/lime.
Balanced tartness with light lemon/lime/light berry continuing with a sour citrus in the mid-palate in the realm of clementine/Mandarin orange family.
Vinous-like in mouthfeel with a nice weight and scrubbing bubbles effect.
Country or rustic dishes with local fowl and seasonal ingredients or perhaps seafood or oysters. Super intriguing for those that are fans of tart or sour ales.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
