Drink: Against the Currant Blackcurrant Kettle Sour
Source: Wellington Brewery, Guelph, ON
Size: 355 mL bottle (1/4)
Grumous violet—think blueberry—on the pour, with little to no head.
Traditional vinegar whiff from the lactobacillus on the nose with definitive blackcurrant undertones; the hops are not pronounced in this sour.
Lively carbonation and light mouthfeel with the bracing tanginess of fresh blackberries and currants.
A moderate finish with only light residual film from the hops and citrus. Nonetheless, balanced, refreshing, and a breath of fresh air.
Hoochsavvy Grade: A
