TN: Oxbow Brewing First Fruits (Sour)

#1 Post by Kirk.Grant » March 1st, 2019, 2:41 pm

This pours a hazy cold of fresh ruby-red grapefruit juice in the glass. The nose reminds me of Tilquin a bit with hints of orange rind and typical sour notes. The palate is mellow, ruby-grapefruit and other tart citrus notes. All in all 500ml went down far too fast & easy...seek it out if you can find it.

Great brewery, just started getting the occasional release from them recently. Worth $15.50/500ml? Our disty just got about 12 different barrel releases from them, still sorting out what I want.
While their barrel aged stuff is deservedly what gets traders hot and bothered, their basic farmhouse Pale Ale and Luppolo Pils just started being packaged for consumption in 4packs and 4pack Pints recently. Brilliant session beers

Love Oxbow. Wish there was distribution in Seattle, but alas.

I'm drinking the Farmhouse Pale Ale now...it's nice. I like it a lot...but I'd rather have one of the First Fruits than 4 of the Farmhouse.

I like their beers a lot

I've had a few of their sours and think they're well worth the price. Easily.
