Day #40 – Freetail Ate’

February 11, 2011

This is the first sour ale I’ve reviewed and it is from Freetail Brewing Company out of San Antonio, TX. This is the first time I’ve seen it and as of now it is only available at the pub.

Freetail Ate’

This beer is classified as a sour ale. Sour ales are fermented with a wild strain of yeast, usually giving it a mouth puckering flavor. This is one of those.

Tap at the pub. Pours a fairly clear golden color with very little head.  Aroma is sour fruit with a slight touch of vinegar. Lots of sour notes here.

Flavor is quite tart an puckering sour. Some fruity flavor with a tingle left on the palate. After the initial shock of sour it starts to ease up a bit.

Different from several other sours I’ve had.
