Parallel 49 Brewing - Surrounded By Idiots Anniversary Ale ReviewParallel 49 Brewing Co. – 5th Anniversary Surrounded By Idiots Bumbleberry Sour Ale Review

To celebrate their 5th birthday, Parallel 49 Brewing has created a Bumbleberry Sour Ale called “Surrounded by Idiots. Labelled using a mash up of past beer characters this beer pours a colour of rich purple with a finger or so of head that settles very quickly and without a trace. The aroma is sharp with a blend or acidity and earthy, wild yeast character. The berries add to the acidity and add a fruity character to the nose. Tasting the beer it is very acidic. The initial hit is all sour and leads to a bigger than expected body and berry flavour. Blended with the wild yeast character there is a pleasant amount of residual sweetness along side the richness of the berries which both help to balance the intense sour flavour. The finish leaves a lingering sourness and wild yeast character making for an overall very sour, but quite enjoyable anniversary beer.

Alcohol – 6.3%
Size – 650ml
