What the brewers say

“Our sessionable Belgian-style sour ales are brewed using Lactobacillus in the wort. We ferment with a Belgian yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruity and tart, with big, juicy tropical pineapple and a hint of mango. A touch of Lacto funk and a cider-like note, as well as light noble hops. Not a lot of malt character aside from a touch of toasted sweetness.”

Flavor: “Bright acidity from the pineapple that dominates at the front and a big, juicy flavor profile that really delivers on fruit. A touch of mango at the back, with slightly green tropical fruit. Moderate Lacto acidity and funk, a very light touch of hops bitterness, and just a hint of salt. Mouth-filling carbonation, thin body, and a nice dryness that’s an invitation to another sip.”

Overall: “Super juicy and refreshing, with lots of complexity and character. The body is light and dry, and the pineapple and Lacto make for lots of tart, tangy goodness. Despite the fruitiness, it’s not overly sweet, which was nice. This beer is lots of fun.”
