Year of New Beer: Foudre Punch, Almanac Beer Co (CA)

Written By: Dion on 04/18/2018

Fruity nose of raspberries and cherries layered over a light grain and wood note that builds with warmth. On the tongue, "punch" is an apt descriptor as sour berries once again dominate. Hints of blueberry join in, creating a definite fruit punch dynamic that teases with a fleeting sweetness along the mid-palate. Oak and hay develop through the glass as the acidity returns on a dry finish. Almanac sours are not cheap, but they seldom disappoint. This one is stellar.
