Sour / Wild Ale
Salt Lake City, UT
Commercial Description: The 19th Birthday Suit, released in 2012, used freeze dried cherries. For this year’s release we decided to go in a slightly different direction, adding fresh Mortmorency cherry puree. These tart cherries add a wonderful flavor to our beer that is balanced by a delicate malt profile using wheat, oats, and Idaho barley. The Belgian yeast used in this beer emphasizes the juicy fruit character imparted by the cherries. For an extra tart-kick, Birthday Suit is kettle soured adding flavors reminiscent of fresh lemonade.
