SLOambic

Like last year, Firestone Walker had the opportunity to purchase fresh marionberries and boysenberries, both close cousins to the blackberry, so they pounced. For this vintage, fresh berries were added to Sour Opal, a beer matured up to 24 months in oak barrels, and then fermented using their proprietary blend of microflora for an additional three months. Bursting with ripe berries and brambles, as well as hints of jam, the fruit gives way to a rustic funk and soft oak flavors, finishing with a mouth-watering acidity.
