This 2020 edition comes in at a big 7.9%. There is a great deal of crossover into traditional Chardonnay, leaving the the cider’s natural apple sweetness to keep it clearly under the cider realm.

Intensity: high. Fruit level: higher. Boysenberry, black currants, vanilla. and lactose. Extremely sour, pleasantly tart. I could live with a bit more sweetness here, but I can’t find a place to fault this hypernova explosion of a sour ale.

I hate trying things from these cutting-edge startup breweries who are still trying to gain some history and standing. Like these guys who’ve only been at it since 1040. Vitus is wonderful. Lots of fruit notes (banana, apricot) and a half-liter of fun.Earned the Das Boot (Level 6) badge!
