Part of the Summer Funk pack this year, as well as newly available on its own, this soured beer is unorthodox but quite incredible.

A thin golden straw in colour, this beer pours with no lasting head.

The cucumber and the lime are evident on the nose, with the gentle sour tang of lactobacillus, leaving no real trace of the wheat or malt.

At 0 IBUs, this is a refreshing splash of tartness and savory—did we mention there’s coriander and Himalayan sea salt?

A clean finish through and through.

Somewhere between lemonade, mineral water, and radler, this beer is readily quaffable beverage that will let you endure lunch sessions or lengthy patio parties.

Hoochsavvy Grade: A+
