Ecliptic Brewing has introduced a new summer seasonal – Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale. Pale wheat malts help create a crisp and tart but full bodied citrusy summer ale with Cascade notes adding some bitterness to the tangerine juiciness. Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale is available late May through mid-August in 12oz cans, 6-packs and on draft.
More from a press release:
“This seasonal beer was a play on our fan-favorite, year-round Carina Peach Sour Ale,” explains John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster. “We wanted to give our customers another light and refreshing option for the summer months, and we had a great tangerine source from a local company- Oregon Fruit Products- so it was an easy decision.”
Tucana Tangerine Sour Ale will first launch at a release party at Ecliptic’s restaurant on Friday, May 24th. It will also be released in both draft and six-pack cans throughout Ecliptic Brewing’s distribution network.
