“Per­son­ally, I don’t like the word ‘sour’ to de­scribe th­ese beers, which are new to North Amer­ica, but have been en­joyed in Bel­gium for cen­turies. It’s too oned­i­men­sional. They’re very di­verse, and in many ways, taste more cider-like, pos­si­bly even like wine. Made with B.C.-grown pears, this light, golden ale (5.5 per cent ABV) ex­hibits a re­fresh­ing tart­ness bal­anced with sub­tle fruit notes. The ef­fer­ves­cent thirst quencher will be served in a 13-ounce tulip glass to keep it cool and fresh while emit­ting its de­li­cious aroma. Since this one is quite acidic, it pairs well with lightly dressed greens, creamy cheeses or some­thing re­ally hearty like cas­soulet or shrimp and grits.”
