Lagunitas Dark Swan Sour Ale

Beer Review #201

Hello, hello. We've reached 200 beer reviews and now its time to move along to Dark Swan Sour Ale from Lagunitas Brewing.

This 8.5% ABV sour ale is brewed with dark red wine grapes and looks 100% the part. It pours a dark ruby red with a  similarly tinged head of rich, red foam to match.

The aroma still says beer, in that fruity IPA kind of way, but the taste is decidedly tart: grape, cherry and the kind of finish that makes your teeth hurt. Just enough carbonation presence differentiates this brew from wine, and the carbonation level steers it clear of grape juice.

Its a weird hybrid, but I like it.
