Açaí & Passionfruit Sour

6.7 IBU
3.8% Alc/Vol
Enigma
Pale, Wheat

Created for Pirate Life’s 4th birthday party, our new Acai and Passionfruit Sour has since become one of the most popular beers we’ve been pouring at our Port Adelaide brewery.
By introducing lactobacillus (good bacteria) into the kettle and leaving it to work overnight, the brewed wort acquires a delicate and pleasant acidity. When paired with a generous dose of passion fruit pulp and Acai berry post-fermentation, we invite even more pucker to the party and a gorgeous rose blush colour to boot. With a simple malt bill of 50% Pale Malt and 50% wheat malt, we allow the souring process and fruit additions to take center stage. The small amount of Australian Enigma hops we use are added only for a lick of bitterness - no generous dry hop additions here. The nose is summer, passion pulp driven and clean, picked lemon, raspberry sherbet, each bubble bursting to release a suggestion of the tartness to come. Palate strikes fresh, lemon rind, stone fruits, tight acidity, a whisper of wheat malt leads to a clean, dry finish. Perfection.
