Parallel 49th Sour White
What can I say? The beer that has it all for me at the moment. Enough funkiness to resemble a saison. Barrel-aged in French Chardonnay barrels for over a year. In a previous incarnation, they branded this as a "Sour Chardonnay Barrel-Aged". Not only was that an uncatchy mouthful, it was misleading because the only similarity to chardonnay was the oak barrel aging, not the taste. Parallel 49 now refers to the brew's "juicy pear" flavour.
Fairly high alcohol (7.5) and nice mild IBU (6) makes this an excellent summer sipper!
