Sun King Brewing Midnight Choir
What the brewers say
Dark sour ale with tart flavors of raspberry and cherry, balanced with a full body and finish.
What our panel thought
Intriguing aroma: herbal remedy, rose water, treacle, anise, raspberry, low dark fruit. Rich but tart, with the fruit somehow finding resonance in that oily residual malt. A touch astringent, with chamomile-like woody-herbal notes. Fairly full-bodied. Strange, compelling balance between acidity and heft.
What our editors thought
Imposing, nearly opaque body opens in the nose with toasted bread, apple, caramel, vanilla, oak. The sip captures these with a bitter touch—curious, slightly sweet, but rich, bitter, and captivating like a dark chocolate truffle.
