Fortuitous - that's the best way to describe our journey so far. We're lucky as brewers to get to do what we love, and to share that with you. This beer was brewed with cherry-wood smoked malts, aged in bourbon barrels, and slightly soured. Enjoy! Per Head Brewer and owner Linus Hall: Fortuitous is made by blending SUE into one of our smaller 10 barrel fermentors that we kept from our Marathon location until we liked how it tasted. But I would guess it’s probably around 30% barrel aged Sue, 65% sour, and we did blend a little fresh Sue in (5%) to round out the aroma.

    Thanks to my buddy Matt for coming through on this Wish List item and a very hard beer to come by in Tennessee. Near black mahogany brown pour, thinnish, with a slight light tan head and nice lacing. Complex aromas of sour and tartness, smoke, light cherry woods, rich cocoa, vanilla, light balsamic vinegar, funk, yeasts, very light whiskey. Taste is not as tart or sour as the aroma would indicate but rather subdued although there is still a lot going on with this one: light smoke, hint of rich cocoa, very slight cherry and fruits, more funk and yeasties. Not much from the bourbon barrel aging - they didn't leave it in those too long! Very interesting beer from Yazoo. Glad I got to try it.
