A Note on This Beer
Council Brewing just brought more reason to the season with Behind the Curtain, a red wine barrel-aged Sour brewed to the tune of a Swedish-style mulled wine. Comparing it to Cascade’s highly-rated Sang Noir, Sour fans have given Behind The Curtain a 4.12 on Untappd for nailing the balance between sour and spice.
Cardamom and clove magic is in the air above the glass. Grace your palate with a cherry-tart full bodied Syrah entangled with cinnamon and grated nutmeg. Then hints of dried currants, vanilla-caramel and new leather arrive from the wine barrels. Finishing with bright lemon and orange zest acidity, Behind The Curtain makes for the perfect fireside companion.
Bring on sweater season, pull out your scarves, and swap the mulled wine for this craft Sour Ale version bundled with spice.
