I haven’t had a bunch of Lagunitas beers lately, so let’s see how this one is.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “You remember it like it was yesterday. The beer flowed like music. The music was all that mattered. What mattered most was that nothing else mattered at all and the world outside fell away as a dream disappears upon waking, ephemeral and vaporous. You cradled her in your hand, lips trembling, her citrus suchness a swarm of expectation in your mind, her carbonate beauty as satisfying as it was overwhelming. You were new to this dance but she was not. Taking her in completely she seized your senses and you were consumed by the luminous passion, her residual sweetness, and the tart earthiness of her grin… This brew is dedicated to the real Aunt Sally. You know who you are. And you know why.”
Random: This is a year-round offering from Lagunitas.
The beer poured with a loose, four finger, ecru colored head. It dissipated quickly, but didn’t leave much lacing on the glass. The body was clear and straw-yellow in color. There was aggressive carbonation visible. The nose was muted for the style. I picked up some sour lemons and light pine, but not much else. The taste had a slight sourness, but not true funk. There was also lemon pine cleaner. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with pine cleaner. A bottle was $2.15, which broke down to $.18 per ounce. I wasn’t impressed by this beer in the slightest.
