Last Days of Summer Fruited Sour Ale
Tampa Bay Brewing's local rep Dan Von Husen was pouring some Last Days of Summer Fruited Sour Ale last month at Grovetoberfest! I was sipping some Reef Donkey, but Dan was having a ball with the thousands of attendees!
Anyway, a day later, I grabbed a can of Last Days to check out for myself. "Crafted For The Florida Lifestyle" 16 oz pounder can. This is a sour ale brewed with mango and peach. Can art depicts a hazy SW Florida sunset.
Tons of mangoes in the aroma with a hint of tartness. Flavors start with a giant, juicy dose of ripe mangoes. Some prickly light sour tartness follows, adds a little balance.
Peaches are secondary for sure. Last Days has a sweet and sour candy type taste, sugary yet tart at the same time. Refreshing. Check it out!
