Brewery Ommegang w/ Brouwerij LiefmansPale Sour Ale
Oudenaarde, Belgium Style: Pale Sour Ale ABV: 6.9%
This collab’s brewed and bottled at Liefmans in Belgium, then imported for Ommegang. It’s a pretty remarkable, nuanced beer, with lots of peach and lime and tart apricot kicking things off in the aromatics. There’s exceptionally complex tartness here, from softer lactic elements to more tart lemon, plus prickly carbonation and (seemingly) toasty wheat giving this a nicely light feel overall. Nuanced and subtle in an abrasive world.
