Lagunitas Aunt Sally

Lagunitas Aunt Sally, A Unique Dry-hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale. Alc. by Vol. 5.7% ABV. Lagunitas Brewing Company, Petaluma, CA & Chicago, IL.

Clear & brilliantly golden, slim ivory head.

Clean aromatics, mild hop bitterness.

In the mouth: puckering at first, tart, fruity, then sweet. Tartness leaps up with each new sip, ends clean and just a little dry. Lean bodied. Rather straight-forward, little complexity. Easy-Drinking, quenchable. Toss-back-able. Sour keeps coming, but it's not too big, not too anything.

Prime contender for top "session sour." Is there such a thing? There is now.
