So here’s another attempt at something sour / tart using the classic New England Summer combo of strawberries and rhubarb. The base beer has a large portion of wheat to hold up to the sharp sourness of the rhubarb and special sour yeast. The strawberries offer a slight hint of sweetness but mostly surrendered their sugars to the cause leaving behind a ripe berry aroma and a pinkish hue.

James is not a big sour drinker. It’s not that he think’s their bad – he just doesn’t reach for them often. He also doesn’t think he’s a great judge of what makes a good sour beer since he is not a regular consumer of the style. Basically this is why he does not brew them particularly often.
