Almanac: Mariposa 6.8% [375ml]

They say “Mariposa, the Spanish word for “butterfly,” was the term used by California’s early settlers to name sites visited by seasonal flocks of Monarch butterflies. It’s also the name of one of our favourite stone fruits, the Mariposa plum. Our juicy high-summer plums were grown and picked by Blossom Bluff Orchards and added to oak foeders filled with mixed culture Brettanomyces farmhouse ale to age. Prior to packaging, we finished the beer with a huge dry hop of El Dorado and Citra. Like a caterpillar going into its cocoon, these ingredients enter the barrel as one thing and emerge as something entirely new.”

We say “This is a dirty funky sour, with the sharpness of under-ripe plum, a citric dash of lemon juice, dusty barn yard, earthy barrel notes and some hoppy bitterness. An interesting sour which wavers between fruity, hoppy and dirty. We think the sharp flavours would cut through a nice crispy Peking duck.”
