A Note on This Beer
East Coast Sour fans go wild for the fruity vinous flavors of Alewerks Brewing’s oak barrel-aged Lover’s Greed Sour Ale, with the 2017 vintage already rated 4.25 on Untappd! Featuring the depth of a coveted world-class brandy, this brew is lavishly oaky with well-developed wild and sour character.
This tart masterpiece takes 36 months of maturation in French Oak red wine barrels, making it one of the most anticipated East Coast Sour Ale releases of 2017. Brandied lemon peel aromatics roll with a bite of cider vinegar soothed by British Toffee. Tart cherries melt into crisp minerals. Brown sugar dusted, booze-soaked apple pie notes are cut with mouth-puckering crab apple tartness. Wine-like tart berry notes arise, enshrouded in a vanilla wood smoothness.
If you appreciate Sour Ales, Lover’s Greed is the perfect guide into the incredibly rich oak flavors of a barrel-aging, and it’s one of the best Sours in Virginia. Already hooked? Get in on one of the best and rarest from the East Coast in Lover’s Greed.
