To all our Collective Project Dry Hop Sour fans, we heard you. This brew is now part of our year-round lineup! After the never ending battle between the hop heads and sour lovers we decided to appease the two. Using Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand and Vic Secret from the Yakima Valley this mixed fermentation brew is juicy, sour and extremely refreshing. Sour & hops in perfect, thirst quenching, melody!

Canned 05Jul2018.

Hazy, pours a nice fluffy head.

Great hop aroma, passion fruit, gooseberry, pineapple and a little weed.

If the sourness was a bit more restrained it’d work better... I’d prefer a light tartness like a fine wine. It is a bit like a sourdough bread rather than just yogurt though.

Well carbed, moderate body has some acidity.

I guess it’s a good dry hopped sour, though I’d prefer more of a hop tart.

Great fruity flavor. Extremely enjoyable tasty and refreshing sour. If you are a fan of sours I wouldn't skip this beer. Personally i wish it was a bit hoppier but the flavour is still among the best. Would definitely pick this up again next time I see it.

Very good beer. Lots of sour and tartness. Some small citrus notes, mainly lemon and lime. Golden in color with a small head, very carbonated. Incredibly tasty and a great session wild ale.

An easy to session sour that isn't too heavy. The carbonation feels great and the sourness stings your nose. If you like sours or drys then this is a beer for you. Plus let's be real, the artwork on the can is DOPE!

A: Pours a hazy pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of pale yellow + lemon yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of lacto tart lemon citrus, slightly funky earth hay-like brett, pale + wheat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness, herbal + citrus/lime + dank resinous hops.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of pale + wheat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of lacto tart lemon citrus and slightly funky earth hay-like brett. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of herbal + citrus/lime + dank resinous hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away leaving lingering tart lemon citrus flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink as it is much more tart than sour and the alcohol is well hidden. Enjoyable with a nice hop presence that complements the funky + tart flavors and aromas.

Poured from a 473ml can.
I think this is only my 4th sour but this one is the best by far.
A flavor bomb for sure. Very nice clean and crisp.
Lots of ratings here i need to try a few more to do a proper rating.

473 mL can from the LCBO; dated May 17 2018 and served slightly chilled.

Pours a foggy yellow-blonde colour, with countless flecks of sediment visible within the body of the liquid. Just under one inch of frothy white foam gathers atop before dissipating within the next two minutes or so; a foamy collar of modest size is its only major remnant. The lacing is a bit scant, but otherwise it looks fine... however, the nose is where my interest is legitimately piqued. It's a little sour, but mostly just fruity - I'm getting hints of white wine and grape, as well as notes of passion fruit, melon, lemon/lime zest and maybe just a touch of stone fruit.

Tart, fruity and refreshing, this is a quality soured ale - the lactic acidity is a force to be reckoned with throughout the sip, providing a sour backdrop that beautifully complements the fruity flavours of the hops. Citrus is the big one - lemon especially, but with minor notes of lime and grapefruit - while hints of melon, stone fruit, white grape, pineapple and passion fruit provide added depth to the profile. There's also a semblance of grainy, crackery pale malt buried somewhere in there. Finishes tart, with lemon and lactic acidity briefly carrying on into the aftertaste, which soon dries out. Light in body, with middling carbonation levels that briskly prickle the tongue, frothing up slightly and giving this brew a smooth texture that borders on soft. Reasonably sessionable by sour ale standards - I could have a few of these in a row, though it's not something I'd want to drink all night.

Final Grade: 4.19, an A-. As far as Ontario-made sour beers go, Collective Arts' Mash Up the Jam is one of the better ones that I've tried - and if you're shopping solely at the LCBO, it might actually be the best option in that category, at least for the moment. They sure picked the right hop bill for this job, as the citrus, tropical fruit and grape flavours imparted by the trio (Citra, Vic Secret and Nelson Sauvin) performs extraordinarily well here. Supposedly a year-round offering, though I haven't seen any stock around here in a few months - hopefully that changes sooner rather than later, because I'd love to be able to pick this up whenever I want.

Here’s a description in layman’s terms:

Smells gorgeous and appealing like hoppy/IPA styles always do- somewhere between green pine pitch and a ripe, citrusy, peppery grapefruit- but instead of mouth numbing bitterness, tastes tart, fruity, crisp and dry. Absolutely outstanding for anyone into the funky yeast sour styles that are/were so popular.

Overall, a really well executed experiment; I’m not sure if there are other similar examples to compare this to or not but I’m loving this refreshing stuff and hope they produce it year round as it’s local to me (Hammer4life) and easy to find.
