Description: True to form for F&G, this limited-release beer is a rather interesting combination of styles and tastes. It combines wheat and barley malts, which are then brewed in the Kettle Sour fashion to create a mild sour ale that is then fortified with boysenberries to become especially tart and refreshing.
Tasting Notes: This is my first review for Fuggles and Warlock, though not the first beer I’ve tried by them. And this beer was a nice departure from some of the more overpowering sours I’ve tried lately. The malts makes for a smooth and refreshing base, while the wild yeast and boysenberry add up to a tart finish that is tart and fruity without being overpowering. Like sour lemonade, its good at slaking thirst!
