Lagunitas Dark Swan Sour Ale Beer Review

So a while back, a while while back, I never got around to uploading my look at the Lagunitas Dark Swan Sour Ale when I took time to taste this little 8.5% ABV treat. It is part of their One Hitter Series and is a Sour Ale fermented with red wine grapes, which for me definitely sounded interesting at the time. A quick rundown on this ale is that for me it was an okay attempt at a sour ale using the grapes as they did come across well in the taste and aroma. The beer had a good and not overwhelming amount of tartness, and I did pick up some subtle and fruity qualities of the beer. There was a light bit of astringency, and a nice bot of mouthcoating as the beer settled well into the cheek area. Overall, it was less than I was expecting with this one but as a sour ale, it met its goal. Check out the video to hear and see more on this one.
