Hoppy Sour: Mandarina
7% ABV | 375ml bottles & limited draft
Mandarina Bavaria hops are Germany’s answer to the bold, vivacious US varieties found in West Coast-style brews. This hop is the daughter of Cascade and Hallertau, combining characteristic New World citrus flavors and aromas with the subtle spice of German noble hops.
We blended our wine barrel-aged sour blonde ale with foeder-fermented brett saison to craft a complex base of stone fruit, oak, and earthy funk to compliment the tangerine and lime-like character of Mandarina. Each sip teases a new flavor, from grass to grapefruit to peaches and finishes crisp and dry.
Hoppy Sour Series
Our Farm to Barrel beers follow the age-old tradition of maturing beer in oak casks. Each Hoppy Sour release begins with a blend of barrel-aged sour blonde ale and brettanomyces-fermented farmhouse ale. Right before bottling this tart and funky brew is generously dry-hopped with a single variety of hop to create a delicious contradiction of flavor and style.
