This is for the true sour beer fan. It's light lemon in color and pours with a thick head. Sour citrus dominates the nose with hints of lemongrass, basil, white cranberry and Granny Smith apple. The mouth is light in body but intense in flavor, loaded with lemon drop, horse blanket, tart gooseberry, hay and a kiss of toast. The carbonation is delicate and refined, a result of the secondary fermentation in bottle. Pair with rich dishes that need a zesty complement, like fried soft-shell crabs.
