Trial & Ale An Equatorial Detour Sour Ale (750 ml)

About This Item

Fruited American Sour & Wild Ale

An Equatorial Detour was blended with the express intent of raising the humidity in any room. A mixed fermentation blend showcasing a playful series of handoffs between the tart, medium acidity our blends are known for, a firm funk background, and the expressive nature of fruit only the tropics can produce. Our house blend of microbes help create the crisp layers underpinning the bold, vibrant nose, and characteristic mixed fermentation dryness, presenting contrary to what our minds expect when we think of fruit. One noticeable trait for this blend is the very obvious lack of subtlety. Of all of our blends, we felt this blend was the most directional in our blending, with no pretense or concession. We bought the ticket, and we unapologetically took the ride. It’s easy to close your eyes and let the beer lead you on the travels we are all yearning for. There are many fruited beers on the market today, we consider this blend to be the Detour from conventional fruited ales. Drop us a postcard, and we hope to hear the stories of your experiences when you get back from your tropical voyage.
