Short, Tart & Handsome

Our dry-hopped American Style Sour ale is a wonderful addition to the taps. Conceived as a “5’6” collaboration beer” between the brewer at Crossroads (Adam) and our very own Handsome Guy. This is a kettle-soured ale that was then fermented with our house ale yeast. We heavily dry-hopped this beer with super fruity and pungent American hops resulting in a bright, aromatic and super crushable tart ale. 5.6%

Notes:

The nose is dominated by citrus and tropical fruits with a hint of lemon and grass.

The flavor is lemons and orange. The lactic fermentation gives the beer it’s bright, tart qualities, while the heavy additions of hops result in a mélange de fruit aroma which plays well with the lemon tart and light body.
