Sippin Pretty Beer Review
Sippin’ Pretty Sour beer is a wild specialty beer according to BJCP guidelines. With moderate lactic berry and some mild sourness, the nasal pull is that of cracker malt and light saltiness. There is soft lactic acidity with plenty of guava and elderberry notes on the nose. Here is what you need to know about this crafty brew.
This beer has the appearance of a cloudy reddish beer, with a medium-sized off-white head. The white foam head has giant swiss cheese-like bubbles, one swirls into the glass and the white head seem to diminish in no time leaving an extremely thin and light lace around the corners of the glass.
The color is somewhere between a muddled dark pink and red. The beer is quite hazy and almost completely opaque. The head dissipates quickly leaving no foam and a clear drink. The gorgeous ruby-pink color of the beer is one of its most attractive qualities.
The beer smells of musty berries with a light salty tang to it. The beer has an overall tart sour nose, the exact aroma that defines a good fruited sour beer. There is a definite presence of salt in the beer with some tropical lurking beneath.
The nose is also quite yeasty, and this is an aspect to keep in mind. Some light raspberry notes emerge from beneath. Overall, the beer has a wave of tropical, fruity character, and fruity tartness with notes of guava, citrus rind, acai berry, and some sea saltiness. There is a mixed hint of hops and wheat too.
The beer has a medium to light body, with a medium mouthfeel. It has a refreshing taste on the palate, leaving you to grab another beer. The mouthfeel is also slightly slick with a clean finish. There is not much aftertaste, thanks to the light body and nil residue.
There is medium carbonation with light bubbles that give a champagne-like feel with a thick yet dry finish. The light tartness leaves the beer feeling mellow and smooth and an easy drink. The ghostly saltiness brings some complexity to the beer.
Fruity, tropical, and slightly sour are the exact words to describe Sippin Pretty flavors. For someone who enjoys experimenting with their beers, this is something they should try. The sourness in this beer feels tricky yet new to the palate. There are flavors of tangy, unsweet, and watery raspberries with light sulfur that dominates the palate.
Some agree to find french bread notes with flavors of black pepper and yeast. There is also a lot of guava presence on the palate with a hint of wheat tartness. Overall, the beer has a dry finish with very little hop presence, light bitterness, and sweetness.
