Sour No. 4 – American Pale SourABV: 6.0% SRM: 5 IBU: 4 A refreshing pale sour brewed with Lactobacillus using a base of 2-row, pilsner and wheat malts. Dry hopped with Bitter Gold for a hint of citrus, this tart, medium-bodied beer is bursting with aromas and flavors of apple, pear and stone fruits.
That’s the company line. I didn’t find in apple or pear in this beer and I don’t even know what stone fruit is. The beer is sour. Starts off with a bite and lingers at the tip of your chest.
This was bought for me by a friend from a new bottle shop in Tacoma, Washington. The shop is the North End Social Club. It has a fantastic tap list. If you are in the area stop in. If you tell the proprietor you heard about them through the Fat Gringo Beer Blog you’ll get a quizzical look and the opportunity to pay for a jug of great beer.
