A Note on This Beer
Every time a friend visits Seattle, I send them straight to Urban Family’s taproom.
It’s home to one of the most enchanting Sour Ale tasting experiences in the Northwest. Show up any day, and you’ll discover a rainbow of tangy Fruit Sours. You’ll want a flight, so that you can taste all of the vibrantly colored pours!
Today’s Heart Strings Fruit Sour with strawberries, raspberries, and red currants is an exception — a taster size won’t do, you’ll want a full pour of this one. Or two!
The reason being, strawberry is an incredibly difficult flavor to highlight in a beer. That’s why you don’t see it used very often — those plump berries are mostly water, and it takes an exorbitant amount of fruit to produce bright flavor.
So we’re sure stoked that the Fruit Beer-focused Urban Family took on the challenge. Not only did the brewery pack in enough strawberries to make a shortcake jealous, they also added jammy raspberries and tart red currants to amplify the strawberry notes. It tastes like biting into a mutant strawberry the size of a watermelon!
I’m so excited about this beer, I want everyone I know to try it. And since you probably don’t have a flight booked to Seattle any time soon, you should grab a bottle right now — we have less than 250!
