Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Guess we missed connections again, Alum. Color is just a shade lighter than the average stout. Thin scraggles of foam. The smell brings up sour cherries with a little roasted malt and chocolate, then notes of red wine. Taste is all about the sourness; I can’t find much of the dark malt at first. The cherry yields to cream sherry. Quite puckery. A fuller texture than the average sour beer. Now I’m picking up some chocolate roast malt toward the end. And at the very bottom, a sense memory of Pop Rocks. Definitely a sipper.

Bottle. Moderate dark bread, roasted, caramel and hay for the malt, light herbs and grass for the hops, heavy dried leaves and damp basement for the yeast. Head is large, frothy/fizzy, light brown with darker swirls, with excellent yet slippery lacing, and is mostly lasting. Color is murky dark brown. Flavor starts harshly acidic, then finishes heavily acidic, lightly bitter and sour. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. I’m still no fan of this style, but this Sour Brown Ale has some interesting attributes.

Boomkweket (33) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2015
BBF 2015 25-09-2015, In principe voor een Sour ale zeker geen slecht bier, weinig head maar dan toch overduidelijk de zure kant van een sour
