I hadn’t had a brew from Heathen Brewing company until I popped the cap on this bad boy. Heathen Brewing out of Vancouver Washington. Even though I mentioned that I was going to try and venture out of the state for brews in my introductory post, there are just soooo many here in state. So here we go!
-Appearance: Slightly murky, light amber, with a head that dissipates rather quickly.
-Nose: Lime fruit loops, a slight bit of mint but not much else.
-Palate: Lime right away. A bit of sour but not enough to really make me consider this brew a sour. Super light but not in a refreshing way. Bit of bitterness on the back palate.
-Rating: 1.75/5: This tastes like Bud Light Lime. Any craft brewery should not try to make a beer that tastes like Bud Light Lime. (Unless I’m part of a very early April Fools joke) Very unimpressive, and uninspired. It’s very light for a sour. I want more flavor, more sour, something way more interesting.
Just a note for brewers. Just because you can make a sour. Doesn’t mean you should make a sour beer. In that vain, if you want to experiment, and make a sour. Have it in your tap room. You don’t always have to release your mistakes upon an unsuspecting public.
This post is part of a series of posts in the 30 Beers in 30 Days project. Enjoy!
