Notes/Commercial Description:
Soroboruo is a backwards take on a Scotch ale. As Scotch ales are typically known for big, toffee-like malt and subdued yeast flavors, Soroboruo allows our wild yeast and bacteria to shine full-heartedly, adding a delightful tartness, balanced by the soft floral notes of the heather flowers. A most unusual and quite exciting take on a sour ale.

3.29/5  rDev -8.1%

Apr 2014 bottle, opened Sep 2014

A - Dark black walnut body with a light tan head. Nice retention and low lace.

S - Bright sour note right up front. Sharp lemon, SweeTart candy, scotch whisky, caramel.

T - Meh. Overpowering oak, salt, vinegar, Worcestershire, tonic water, and white bread.

M - Surprisingly thin. Dry finish.

O - An interesting concept, but unfortunately this is probably the worst beer I've had from the Bruery. The integration is sub par, and the flavor profile is unpleasantly savory.

An big brew with huge floral honey in the front. A light tartness that is cut with the honey sweetness of this beer. There's a creamy mouthfeel with toasted malt with huge floral lavender and almost Earl Grey floral.

A-Black in the glass, one finger off white head that leaves some lacing.

S-The flowers are present, wee bit of acidic notes, some caramel and malt. Little to no barrel character.

T-Starts with a lot of flowers, some acidic notes. Still little to no barrel, some chocolate.

M-Lighter, watery, not much carbonation.

O-An interesting beer but it just didn't all come together.
