Well you bought up all of the Fifth Element Wild Saison. I hope you're proud of yourselves! If you somehow managed to miss-out on that boat, round three in the Squatters/Wasatch sour hat-trick hits today.
Squatters 529 Oud Bruin is a blend of new and old and is finally being released today, just in time for the holidays. 529 generally denotes the number of days the base sour beer spends getting all funk-i-fied in oak barrels. If you haven't had the pleasure, 529 Pours a deeper amberish color with a small sized off white head. The
nose is of of cherries, dust and some spiciness. The taste starts with
notes of cherry tartness, caramel and brown sugar. Tobacco notes come
next as well as lemon peel and sour grapes. The finish is tart, woody
and dry. @ Squatters & The Beer Store.
Squatters has limited hours today (Xmas Eve). They are open from 11am to 3pm. These are very limited releases and are gone when gone. I guess this makes up for me getting denied on Van Winkle Day.
