Consider my mind blown.
When my friend told me she’d had a sour beer from New Belgium that was super tasty, I had to try it. Sour beer?! Wah? So I shortly headed to the Rhino, our beloved local beer bar, to try a sample, not expecting to like it.
The bartender handed me the glass of Le Terroir sour ale and warned me that it was an acquired taste. I sipped, and….whoa. Interesting. Kind of like drinking alcoholic pickle juice, but in the best possible way. While I normally like my beers on the darker, sweeter side, this was an interesting alternative: very acidic and tart. A kick in the mouth pants. Not something I could pound, but still quite tasty, and packs a strong 7.5 percent.
If you like tangy, tart flavors and beer, I recommend checking this sour ale out while it’s still $2.50 a pint at the Rhino.
