Indigo Child

Indigo Child, The Wild Beer Co. + Toccalmatto, Limited Edition, 8%

God, I love sour beers.

This one is a collaboration beer by English brewers, The Wild Beer co, with Italians, Toccalmatto. It’s part of their ‘Rainbow Collaboration’, a series of one-off brews that come in seven beer colours from red to violet. This one’s, as you guessed, indigo.

It’s a murky brown with the slightest plum tinge. On pouring, it leaves a gloopy, yeasty residue in the bottom of the bottle and it smells sapidly sour. It tastes like the filling in my Braeburn apple, and blackberry crumble that’s both sweet and just on the right side of sour. There’s the gentle tartness of red gooseberries, too.

At 8%, one bottle is enough but I definitely want more.
