Exploring Sours: Entry level bottles

Posted on

Admittedly, at this point,  I have only had a few.  Your basic standard entry-level items, (which count as sours on untappd): Dogfish Head’s Festina Peche, Moa’s Breakfast, Some Bruery selections – but I have noticed a common taste profile. They all taste and have a mouth feel of a really enjoyable Champagne.

One that falls in between say an Extra Dry and a Brut.  Meaning Tart (to varying degrees) but still have just a hint of sweetness, and all were dry crisp and refreshing. Meaning something you drink the entire  glass of and not burn yourself out on after a few quick sips.  I have yet to pick up on the vinegar notes people talk about (though wine like flavors are quite common, so I see where the taste could go).

I am rather excited to delve deeper, as they seem to be a style I can get into:  Off the beaten path, not bitter, complex, and not to forget: quirky as anything.  Look for further entries in the Sour styles coming soon.

        Is Festina Peche a sour? Hum… It did not fall into that category for me.

        I would heartilly recommend
        Duchesse De Bourgeone
        Curvee De Jacobins
        La Folie (hard to find)
        Birthday Suit of Crooked Series by Unita

        Whats your untapped?
