Boundless possibilities: The Fruit Sour breaks the boundaries of known beer styles! As the name of the beer style suggests, it is mainly about the addition of fruits. These clearly play the main role in the beers of this category.
Fruit Sour - fruit bombs!
This young style has its origins - like so many modern styles - in the craft beer scene in the USA. Here, people experimented with oodles of fruit in their beer. The result is sour beers that have a juice-like aroma and texture. There are no limits to which fruits are added to the beers and in which combination.
Combinations of tropical fruits such as pineapple, mango and passion fruit are popular; a mix of different berries such as blueberries, raspberries and blackberries; yellow stone fruits such as peaches are also popular. The colors of the beers are correspondingly intense. Sometimes the fruits are combined with ingredients such as chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon or lactose - creating completely different taste experiences.
