Kettle Sour Dry Hopped with Pacific Gem – Ravens Brewing Company (Doan’s Craft Brewing Company)

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

Ravens Brewing Company in Abbotsford had Doan's Craft Brewing Company from Vancouver out to collaborate on their brand new "Kettle Sour Dry Hopped with Pacific Gem". The beer pours a golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of citrus, hint tropical, sweetness but fairly mild. The flavour is of lemon, grapefruit, hint of blackberry, rye spice, herbal, oak and a mild sour note. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 8. This could be a very good sour to introduce people to sour beers as it is not hugely sour and wont punch them in the face while still tasting really good.

Commercial Description: Utilizing New Zealand Hops and influenced by German styles we have created a true collaboration of flavours, ingredients and ideas, perfect for a West Coast Summer. Dry Hopped with Pacific Gem, this Kettle Sour combines a tart and light body with hints of Blackberry and Oak. Using Rye Malt enhances the complexity providing an underlying spiciness to blend with the fruity and bright notes.
