Metallurgy is the technique or science of working with metals, and the sour ales in this unique collection are aged for about a year in stainless steel rather than oak barrels to maintain sour ales in their purest form. This metal-aged purity and simplicity is further complemented by relying solely on the wild yeasts and other microflora naturally occurring on the fruits to beautifully and spontaneously sour these beers, bridging all gaps between ciders, wines and ales. Sour Pear Ale presents with a pronounced aroma of fresh pears and Brettanomyces with light straw color, a mouthfeel and body that is velvety soft from fruit skins, similar to sauvignon blanc wine, and a bright flavor evocative of ripe, fleshy pears.
