Swamp Fly Sour Ale

Sour Ale w/ Haskap Berries


Sour Ales have started growing in popularity throughout North America over the past decade. This beer was produced using a technique called “kettle souring” which is simply lowering the pH of the wort and adding a lactobacillus culture to give this a pleasant tartness. This would be a perfect base beer to compliment the beautiful tart and sweet flavours of haskap berries from Oliver Farms, Vineyard and Haskap Orchard in Meaford, Ontario.

Tasting Notes

A bright pink with red hues and a tight white head. The aromas boast a nice berry sweetness reminiscent of a blend of blueberries and raspberries. The flavour is very light with a nice sweetness followed by a light and sharp lactic acidity balanced by a mild bready character. This is very dry and light.



Food Pairings

Beet Salad, trout, goat cheese
