Red Summer Rain tasting notes
Red Summer Rain is a sour ale from a collab between Laugar and Hungarian Brewery Mad Scientist. It is labeled as a Watermelon Sour, and that fruit is present all along the beer. Color is golden with a small head, and aroma is bitter with some sourness. Taste is sweet with soft hints of watermelon. A light and fruity sour ale.
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.
