Brasserie Dunham Oro Zuur – Sour / Wild Ale at 5% ABV

Brasserie Dunham Oro Zuur Sour / Wild Ale at 5% ABV (C$20.00 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 750 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 7-Jan-2018, reviewed 25-Jan-2018)

Appearance: opaque pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin ring, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grapefruit flesh & rind, pineapple, pine. (8/10) Taste: high tart, moderate sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (4/5)

Given the label (“Pamplemousse rose + Vic Secret”) I was expecting something like a Vic Secret hopped Radler, but that’s not even close to what this turned out to be. I mean, yeah, it’s got the grapefruit and the expected Vic Secret flavours going on, but it’s much more tart than even straight grapefruit juice. It’s a lot of fun, but a pretty emphatic sour. (16/20)
