Festina Lente

Limited, Draft Only
Original Release Date: 

A neo-lambic ale that goes through both a yeast and bacteria fermentation and is then aged on oak chips and 400 pounds of Delaware peaches. This beer is very tart and complex. It is bottle-conditioned in champagne bottles.

Dogfish Head is proud to let you know that Festina Lente was awarded a bronze medal  in the Belgian-style Sour Ale category at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.
