Honey malt, and fresh sweet basil…a
summer ale WTF happened to this ale, ale. Somehow, this ale turned sour. I suspect the yeast, since the basil itself was added during the boil, and any bacteria would have been killed. That being said, it may be good after all. Sours can be quite nice, but take time to mature properly. So…we’ll see.
