  • Nose: The nose is fruity, tart, and funky.  There are aromas of plum, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, apricot, wet leather, horse blanket, and light crackery grains.
  • Taste: The taste of the Tarty To The Party is tart, sharp, fruity, and funky.  There are notes of plum, raspberry, lemon juice, light vinegar, cereal grains, a hint of clover honey, and barnyard funk.  
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and well-carbonated, the mouthfeel of the Tarty To The Party is frothy, tart, refreshing, and very crisp with a lip-puckeringly tart, dry finish.
Overall pairing: The crazy, funky grooves of Parliament's "Gloryhallastoopid (Or Pin The Tail On The Funky)" requires a funky, bright, and tasty brew, which is exactly what you will find in a bottle of the delightfully tart Tarty To The Party Plum Sour Ale from Wild Ride Brewing Company!
