Year of New Beer: Outlaw Bound, The Rare Barrel (CA)

Written By: Dion on 04/29/2018

Fortunate enough to have small tastes of several new beers today, but this one stood out for me. Sharp citrus notes of lemon and lime on the nose, with a dusty, funky quality coming through with just the slightest bit of warmth. On the tongue, the fruits are acidic and biting, as lime begins to dominate. Along the mid-palate a margarita-like sweetness takes a bit of the edge off the pucker. Light oak and hay work well against a touch of almost Gose-like brine. Dry and sour on the finish. Very nice. Enjoyable tasting with some good people,
