Beachwood Blendery "Careful with that Aprium, Eugene" Lambic Style Ale w/ Aprium, California (500ml)

SKU #1341213 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Inspired by Belgian lambic tradition, this sour ale is fermented and aged in oak barrels with apriums. The name instantly hooks—a reference to Pink Floyd’s 'Careful With That Axe, Eugene'—though the modern label is equally enticing. The tart, refreshing fruity tones are upfront on the nose and mouth, expressed in waves of underripe stone fruit: aprium, of course, so plenty of plum, apricot and pluot. There’s a pleasant wild funk to the nose, with hints of barnyard and lactic acid. The palate is vibrant and refreshing, with medium carbonation and a strong acidic streak that lends a mouthwatering sensation to the finish.  (7/2018)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
