A Note on This Beer
Honestly, nectarines are a wholly underappreciated fruit.
We don’t even need two hands to count the number of nectarine brews we’ve seen on Tavour. Which is pretty crazy to think about, especially considering how much the lovely sweetness of this stone fruit ramps up a beer’s tartness.
But that’s why we’re so stoked to have today’s 4.14 UT-rated, oak-aged Nectarine Oro Sour Ale from the Southern California small-batch crafters at Good Beer Co.!
This nectarine-soaked sipper is brimming with such vibrant layers of drippy stonefruit and jammy tartness, it’s no wonder Hop Culture Mag just called it out as one of their 5 Best Beers of the Week.
When you need a thirst-quenching treat to beat the heat, just grab some of this limited-release, newly-canned fruit tart! Because if you’re looking for a taste of one of the most underrepresented fruits in craft today, there’s no better place to start than with this Sour sipper.
Good Beer ages fresh nectarines from nearby Sunny Cal Farms in oak barrels along with their house-mixed cultures, making Nectarine Oro reverberate with puckering power. Softly-spiced woody notes mingle with the luscious fruit character in each dry sip. The combination of its intense sour edge, bright fruitiness, and vanilla-oak notes make it a Sour fan’s wildest nectarine dream.
If you missed it last time this 92/100 BA-scored nectarine brew came around, you may rejoice. ‘Cause now’s your chance to get a taste of one of the most underappreciated juicy fruits in a lip-smacking California quencher.
