Fordham The 11th Sour

I am not a big fan of the Summer. I hate the heat, especially when it’s that really humid type of heat. I also work in a warehouse that isn’t air-conditioned. It’s super fun this time a year when you can feel how thick the air is in the warehouse itself. I tend to look for lighter beer during the Summer to try to get through the heat.

ABV: 3.8%

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The first Sour batch ever brewed by FoDo Brewing. This ale is a kettle sour that uses lactobacillus, fermented on house ale yeast and then aged on concord grapes. Typical to any sour, this ale is pleasantly flavored and zings your tastebuds over and over.”

Random: It’s been a long time since I had a beer from Fordham.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly, but only left wispy lacing on the glass. The body was a bright orange that was slightly hazy with lots of carbonation. The nose was relatively mild for a sour. It had some mineral water and some caramel malt. The taste started with some tartness and white grape juice. There was also some very lightly toasted malt present as well. The body was incredibly light with just enough carbonation. It had an almost instantaneous finish with light tartness. A bottle of this was $2, which came to $.17 per ounce. I wasn’t a big fan of this beer. It was really lacking in the flavor department.

Untappd Rating: 2.0/5.0
