Bacchus Sours Friday.  This Friday, the Brewery at Bacchus is releasing their latest beer: INCANDENZA. This beer has spent 8 months in red wine barrels with brettanomyces and souring bacteria. It is their first full scale barrel release, and they say it is “arguably one of the best beers we have put on tap so far.”

To celebrate they’ll be putting 3 of their finest sour beers on tap this Friday, October 3rd. Here’s the list:

INCANDENZA: Sour Ale (6%): Brewed with grapefruit peel and Citra hops, fermented brettanomyces and soured with our house sour cultures. It spent 8 months in red wine barrels from Whitecliff Vineyard in Gardiner NY. Tart and funky with notes of lemon, ginger, and tropical fruit.

SEYVAL SOUR: American Wild Ale (6%): This beer is INCANDENZA refermented on top of Seyval Blanc grape skins from Whitecliff Vineyard in Gardiner, NY. More upfront funk than INCANDENZA with fruity tannins from the grapes.

OBSCURA: Dark Sour Ale (9%): A beautiful blend of 2 of our favorite beers: Luxuria Imperial Chocolate Stout and Jona Gose To Portland, a sour wheat beer brewed with sea salt. Its bright and tart upfront, with a smooth chocolate finish. We only have 5 gallons of this one, so get here early.

They tap INCANDENZA at 6pm, so get there early because like all of their beers, there isn’t a ton.

Jack’s Abby Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Framinghammer, a very limited beer I’ve been dying to try for a long time. Good, but somewhat disappointing with a very boozy finish, almost ‘bad-hairspray-vodka-ish.’ I bet this would be a lot better after a year or so of cellar time. Minor bummer.

Today deserves a beer that tastes exactly like a Girl Scout Samoa cookie. Chocolate, caramel and coconut. I hope it’s true that DuClaw is coming into NY soon.
