Four Winds Nectarous Dry Hopped Sour Ale Review Four Winds Brewing Co. – Nectarous Dry Hopped Sour Ale Review

The Eurus series of beers from Four Winds has seen a bit of a facelift with an even more elagent look that before. This dry hopped sour ale has been much anticpated by sour fans but don’t think that this is going to be a hoppy twist on the sour style. With only 6 IBUs this sour will be very low in bitterness. From the champagne corked bottle the Nectarous pours as a rather cloudy golden colour topped with four fingers worth of head. The head is fairly loosely packed and settle moderately quickly leaving light lacing behind on the glass. The aroma is sharp with a distinct yeasty-sourness and a tropical fruit nose. Passionfruit, peach and nectarine tones come through strongly in a distinct and very sour package.  The flavour is very fruity with passionfruit notes and mango being rather forward. A citrus bite follows the innitial fruitiness in an acitic and flavourful brew. Despite the intensity of the flavour the Nectarous remains rather light and easy to drink. If you are a sour fan then this is a beer that you need to try before it sells out. If you aren’t a sour fan, this may just turn that ship around as this is approachable, flavourful and one of BC’s best sour beers to date!
