Four Winds Nectarous Dry-Hopped Sour Wild/Sour at 5.5% ABV (On tap at Craft Beer Market Calgary, reviewed 23-Feb-2016)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of white head, poor retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tart peaches, citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, straw, light brine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, light salt. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, drying finish. (4/5)

As usual, I’m a sucker for a sour. This one actually has a little bit of saltiness going on, reminding of a Gose. I like this quite a bit. There’s also some Brett funk coming through, adding a nice complexity. (16/20)
