Aunt Sally Sour Mash Ale

Lagunitas Brewing (Petaluma, CA)
"A Unique Dry-Hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale. We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what's the difference? It's sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes."
Interesting ... sour, fruity and very different. I think I like it.
My son grabbed a 6-pak while we were on vacation. I've not been able to find more. I really need to spend more time with this beer.
5.7 ABV, 27 IBU
