Sour Golden Ale with Marechal Foch & Frontenac Grapes, Raspberries, and Blueberries
On Tap Now
This Sour Golden Ale was initially brewed with Marechal Foch and Frontenac grapes, raspberries, and blueberries before being fermented in oak barrels from J Vineyards & Winery from the Russian River Valley of California. The aroma of Barrel #15 is a complex blend of fruity characteristics, with the grapes taking the main stage; the raspberries and blueberries are the perfect addition to accentuate the grapes. An underlying fermentation character provides an excellent counterbalance of bright acidity and earthy aromas to the fruit. A medley of grape, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry flavor is balanced by the sour acidity and earthy, barnyard fermentation character. This beer finishes off with a layer of tannins from its time spent in the barrels, which provides a mouthfeel for a complex and dry finish.
