Spinnaker's Brewery Tequila Repersado Sour Ale Spinnaker’s Brewery – Tequila Reposado Sour Ale Review

Spinnaker’s Brewery has released a Tequila infused Sour Ale in their Brewers Reserve series of Single Batch beers. At only 100 cases this is a beer that will be tough to find and won’t last long. From the bomber bottle the Tequila Reposado Sour is a colour of cloudy straw with half a finger of head which leaves light lacing behind as it quickly settles. The aroma is tart with a defined oak-tequila tone along side a sharp acidity. The Tequila Spice blends with woody-oak tones and makes for an unique and fairly intense aroma. The flavour starts off with a light bodied acidity that is fairly sharp. This builds into the tequila oak tones that balance out some of the acidity and gives an earthy-spice to the latter stages of the beer. The finish is contrastingly neutral (no, contrastingly isn’t a word) with wheat notes and a lingering tequila flavour that settles slowly along side a mild saltiness. This is a well balanced beer given the intensity of flavours and diversity of ingredients.
