Hi!

I wonder if anyone could recommend some good Sour Beers or fruit beers that have 4,7% or lower alchol.

Most Geuze and Lambic is around 5%, but im looking for something that is just under in alcohol.

Thanks!

I donít know what is available in Norway, but Iíd try any Berliner Weisse you can find. Those will be sour and probably under 4.7%

Does 4.71% qualify?

4.71 > 4.7, so no.

Iím guessing itís something to do with the fact that only the Government-owned Vinmonopolet stores are allowed to sell anything over 4.7%.

And I think 4.7% is relevant to the amount of beer that Norwegians can bring back into the country duty free.

As for fruit beer, you canít go wrong with New Glarus Serendipity, New Belgium Red and their Raspberry Tart. All with GREAT ratings and are at 4% abv. You will have to trade for them but if you can get any of them you wonít be disappointed!

Yes, that is right. But we can bring back any beer up to 23 % on the duty free, as long as it is a beer.

http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/jolly-pumpkin-bam-noire/77543/ is listed as a Saison, but is a Sour IMO. 4.3% ABV, and one of my favorites!
