Sour beer is the rage these days — it is essentially beer which has an intentionally acidic, tart or sour taste — popular styles include American Wild Ale, Berliner Weisse, Gose, Flanders Red Ale, Lambic and Oud Bruin.
The main flavor of a sour beer is tartness, like a strawberry or lemon. But many sours also have a «funky» taste that some say smells like a horse blanket or a barnyard but there is certainly some major pucker power here.
We are thrilled to have Jim Phelan of Untapped Craft Imports here to lead our Sour Power tasting — don't miss this Thursday night stand-up event. as we discover some rare bottlings.
