Year of New Beer: Hologram, Bearded Iris Brewing (Nashville)
Written By: Dion on 12/16/2019
Straight fruit slushie on the nose with tart blueberries and currants getting softened by the lactose. Citrus really begins to pop as it warms. So much tart juice on the tongue. The blueberries and currants are certainly there, but auxiliary notes of green apple, lemon, and raspberry somehow manage to trick you into believing they are in there as well. Everything comes off like sour fruit candy, with the lactose adding just a bit of creamy sweetness on the finish. Zero hint of the 8.5% ABV. This may be my favorite fruit sour I've had from Bearded Iris.
