What the brewers say

“Brooklyn Bel Air Sour is full of surprises. It starts up with bright notes of tropical fruit yet finishes crisp and gently tart. It’s a trip that’s laid back, breezy, and completely refreshing.”

What our panel thought

“A wonderfully aromatic beer that gives the impression of a fruit addition despite its lack thereof. Likely hops-derived aromatics of apple, pear, peach, lemon, passion fruit, and tangerine. The fruit aromas give way to a tart, yet refreshingly flavorful beer. Stone-fruit flavors of peach, apricot, and plum are clean and refreshing with the lactic tartness. The souring aspects of this beer masterfully complement the hops profile to create a truly complex and synergistic beer. A great combination of bright, distinct flavors.”

What our editors thought

“Musty, earthy hops and a touch of Colombian coffee on the nose. The flavor leans toward hops-derived citrus, that earthy tea blend of lemon and lime with a subtle spice underpinning it. It’s clever yet satisfying, eschewing more obvious Citra notes in favor of a winding, complex path to a similar destination.”
