Beer Of The Week 20 - Vibrant Forest 'Zuur'

A trip across the Leeds earlier in the week provided this weeks 'Beer Of The Week'. On the keg font at Mr Foleys was Vibrant Forest 'Zuur'. It was a great beer, so good I had to have a second but when I read the brewery tasting notes, the reason became clearer.

Vibrant Forest is a brewery based on the fringes of the New Forest, in Lymington, and is vegan friendly and brews a mixture of cask, keg and bottled beers.

'Zuur' is 3.5% and a Belgian Sour style beer. nothing too special there I hear you say. But each batch brewed - it is irregular however - has a blend of different seasonal fruits, and different American hops. The variety I sampled had Mosaic hops - that's why I found it so moreish. Even though it was a sour it was not aggressively so, more tart than sour. Well worth a try if you see it.
