Red Collar Apricot Sour Ale Review Red Collar Brewing Co. – Apricot Sour Ale Review

Sour Beers are everywhere and Red Collar Brewing has fetched a fruit sour by brewing with Apricots. This beer comes in at 5.5% alcohol and a modest 10 IBUs. Straw and cloudy in colour in the glass this beer has two fingers of head which settle quickly, leaving no traces behind. The aroma is of nectarine in a sweet and sour fashion. A light jammy-tone packs a punch while a light citrus-lemon note gives a tartness on the nose. The flavour too is a blend of sweet and sour. A light body leads into the sour-apricot flavour that starts of with an icidic kick. From here a sweetness builds from the Apricot. Interestingly but suprisingly delicious, the sweet notes are matched with a saltiness that balances things out. The final notes are a sweet and salty mix where the apricot flavour slowly fades into the distance.


Alcohol – 5.5%
IBU – 10
Size – 650ml bottle
