Previously a small section of the beer chiller, now it seems you can’t avoid sour beers. Definitely on trend, we have also included some classic must try sours, and to balance, a selection of beers with a fruity, almost sweet edge, and some that could even be called both sweet and sour. Nonetheless, 13 beers of awesomeness.
Young’s Double Chocolate Stout 440ml
Just in case you haven't consumed enough chocolate over the festive period, here's more. They add real, dark chocolate and chocolate essence to the brew.
Mort Subite Oude Gueuze 375ml
Go to a Gueuze for a serious sour. Take a blend of Lambic beers then allow to spontaneously ferment then age in barrel. Challenging but tasty.
Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit 330ml
A complex beer made with a mixture of malts and spiced with coriander and orange peel. It is deep red in colour, rich, sweet, malty and full bodied.
Panhead Lola Deville Saison 440ml
Nothing says summer like a fruity Saison. Brewed with Rosehips and Hibiscus, Deep Pink in colour with berry aromas and a zesty slightly bitter end.
Choice Brothers Reet Petite 440ml
If you haven't tried this award winning beer you need to! Red IPA with a hint of ginger. Malty, hoppy, spicy and yummy.
