It’s been a while, but I’m back again trying more beers. I was out of the beer drinking game for a while due to a nasty cold/Chicago CTA shared virus. Now, I’m back to feeling 100% and craving some tasty beers.

The Aunt Sally by Lagunitas is definitely different compared to your normal Lagunitas beers and just any ales in general. It has a citrus smell to it, instantly making you think it’s going to taste sweet. When you taste it, you know right away that this is a sour beer. It isn’t too sour to drink, but you definitely get a sweet then sour taste. It has a golden color to it and it goes down pretty easy. Some people are really into sours and some hate them. This one is good, but I wouldn’t drink a lot of them. If you haven’t had a sour before, they’re definitely an interesting take on beer.

Lagunitas says, “It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what’s the difference? It’s sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes.” As a reminder, Lagunitas brews in Petaluma, CA and Chicago, IL.
