Wow just a quick glance at the reviews and now after about a year, I finally have a beer worth reviewing.

I won't waste time going down the taste list, please review ddb to to that. However I will let you know that this is a very drinkable sour, coconut forward, mild and fun. Not to sweet, yet you will have enamel left and your insides will not be rotten. One of the best sours from Bruery... Pop and enjoy, or send to me

In my opinion, the reviews are surprisingly low for this one. I didn't get much ginger, but this is basically Sour in the Rye with Coconut, and it is freaking amazing. I would love to get another bottle of this. 4.5/5

750 ml waxed bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
8% ABV

A - Hazy rustic honey colored with a head that audibly fizzles out into nothing almost instantaneously - it must be pretty damn acidic!

S - With it's vanishing head, it's hard to grab a nose from the brew but suggestions of pineapple and toasted coconut overlap wet straw and a lightly tart funkiness.

T - Toasted coconut lightly dusted with cinnamon crosses the tongue with a slightly sweet caramel maple syrup-kissed malt background and funky acidic finish.

M - Light and undercarbonated for the audible fizz the beer's head lets out, this tart beer finishes with a lovely dryness and nod to puckering sourness.

O - Melange No. 9's interesting blend of coconut, cinnamon, and maple works splendidly in this "light" sour that finishes slightly still and tart for a completely unique brew.
