Bellwoods Jelly King

Brewery: Bellwoods Brewery
Country: Canada
ABV: 5.6%
Style: American Wild Ale

Brewer Description: (from website & menu) This mixed fermentation ale was soured with a 5-strain house blend of lactobacillus, and heavily dry-hopped with Citra, Amarillo, and Cascade. The result is a juicy, sour and thirst-quenching. Lots of fuzzy peach, tangerine, and cedar hop aroma and flavours with very low bitterness.

Intro: On tap at Bellwoods Brewery on Ossington, Toronto. A 16oz pour into a goblet glass.
Appearance: It was a hazy yellow orange colour (like pineapple juice) with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing. Side by side Runes Simcoe & Mosaic, it looks exactly the same.
Aroma: Sour peach, some citrus lemon and mandarin.
Taste: Juicy, lightly sour peach with hints of mandarin.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: A refreshing and easy to drink sour ale.
