Beer Review: Bruery Terreux Sourrento (Retired)

This is my look at the Sourrento from Bruery Terreux which is a subsidiary of The Bruery, a sour ale that has an ABV of 6.1% and a low IBU of just 5. The beer itself is a sour ale as one could presume for the title and was inspired by an Italian lemon flavored spirit, Limoncello. Unfortunately this offering is retired now, but thought I would still share my look at it.

The beer itself is a blonde ale that was created with the use of lemon zest and also vanilla beans. The beer is oak barreled and for me, the oakiness of the barrels and the vanilla came through very easily as well as that of the lemon and the tartness being sought. Even after being cellared the beer still held a good amount flavor and aroma making it still a nice treat. Images of lemon meringue pie and that of a lemon tart came through in this beer making a nice ale that would be an easy fit as a dessert beer. All in all, it was a pleasurable experience with this one that I scored 82. It was well worth the pick-up and try.
