From Torchlight Brewing in Nelson BC comes their “Noctis” a dark lavender hibiscus sour. The beer pours a deep red brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of floral hops, hibiscus, fruits and mild tartness. The flavour is of hibiscus, citrus, stone fruit, flowery and mild sour notes. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 8. This was a very interesting beer. This is a mild sour but would be a great one to try if you are just getting into sours.
