Foreign Native—tasting notes
Foreign Native is a Wheat Sour Ale from a collab between Galway Bay and Danish Brewery Broaden & Build, brewed with blackberries. It has a strong presence of blackberries both in taste and aroma, and a tart sour palate.
A sour ale, also known as wild ale is a category that englobes all type of ales that are brewed with other bacterias than traditional brewing yeasts—Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus or Acetobacter to name the most common. The composition of this microflora varies a lot even between short geographical distances—probably due to the evolutionary pressure of human brewing activity—making each local variation unique.
