Sour Beer

Pretty self-explanatory here: sour beers are sour. With beer styles ranging from gueuzes to the Berliner weisse, sour beers have flavour profiles that are sure to please and, of course, shock. Despite some flavours that can best be described as "funk," rest assured these beers aren't off: they're meant that way!

Belgian lambics and gueuzes are known for their sour and dry features because they're made by a process known as open-air fermentation: that means that the flora and fauna local to that brewery have a lot of say in how the beer is going to turn out. With regards to beers like the German Berliner weisse or Flanders Reds, they achieve their funky sourness with help from various wild yeast strains and bacterias.

Admittedly, these styles can be a bit of an acquired taste. Yet, the fruit lambics from the likes of Cantillon or Lindeman's are an easier starting point into the world of funk. You could also try pouring a bit of raspberry syrup into a Berliner weisse--like The Kernel London Sour--it's the way the German's do it!

I was very happy with the order once it had arrived.
Fantastic selection in the thorn bridge collection! Can't fault the speedy delivery time either 😁 Surprise went down a treat I can't wait to order again
I bought the father's day gift from beer hawk after seeing it advertised on this morning. I was extremely impressed with the faultless service I received and my dad was even more impressed with the fantastic beers! I would highly recommend beer hawk and will be using them again.
