Brian Hink tastes The Topsail
It’s time for the latest iteration of our Barrel Aged Series — The Topsail. This sour Blonde ale aged for nine months in the same barrels that held our first release in this series, The Keel.
An adventurous and intriguing sour Blonde, this 9.9% bad boy expands on flavors found in previous releases in the series. Rustic and earthy, yet fruity and sour, The Topsail’s firm lactic acid presence hints at flavors such as peaches, mangoes, and apricots.
Bottle conditioned and ready to evolve, The Topsail is poised to be cellared for up to two years.
“It’s rustic. It’s got a nice lactic acid finish to it.”
The Topsail casts off on Saturday, February 18th. Don’t miss the boat!
