Blood Orange Sour – Steel Toad Brewpub

From Steel Toad Brewpub in Vancouver comes their “Blood Orange Sour” a Berliner Weisse.  The beer pours a cloudy dark pink with a whitish pink head.  The aroma consists of bloody oranges, mild tartness and maybe a hint of something herbal.  The flavour is of blood orange, stone fruit, grapefruit rind and tartness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 10.  This is really tasty and a nice sour for the summer coming up.  This sour wont kick your taste buds in the teeth which is nice as so many kettle sours are extremely sour.

Commercial Description:  This kettle soured wheat ale, (Berliner Weisse) has been blended with blood oranges after fermentation.  The resulting beer is extremely easy drinking, refreshing, and delicious.
