Uinta Reveals their Birthday Suit

"In the beginning, cherry trees shaded the beer garden. Resisting temptation no longer they picked the fruit and let it ferment in to a pleasingly sour and subtly sweet ale".

These are the words accompanying the bottle on the sixth addition to Uinta's Crooked Line of beers. It's the latest sour beer to come out of Utah. Originally brewed last summer, Birthday Suit was made to help celebrate Uinta's 19th birthday.

Birthday Suit is a Sour Cherry Ale with a hint of Belgian influence. Made with the latest "sour mash" techniques, this beer takes its sour base and fuses it with the natural tartness and tannins from the cherries to make an extremely quaffable and sessionable sour ale. "A sinful pleasure for the experienced and adventurous pallet".

This special bottle conditioned brew will come in at 5.7% ABV and be packaged in the Cooked Line's signature, corked and caged 750ml bottles.

Local artist, Travis Bone designed the label for Birthday Suit. He also did the artwork for Uinta's Cockeyed Cooper.

Birthday Suit is due to be released; end of February/beginning of March.

Cheers!

Man there's a lot of good stuff flowing lately. It's a damn good time to be a Utah beer geek.

Can't wait to try this one.

looks like the sour craze is officially in full swing. hopefully at 5.7% this one won't have the super boozy finish that's prominent in the rest of the crooked line roster.
