Two Tides Brewing Company's Chromatose Blackberry Sour
The Find Your Craft mini series featuring Two Tides Brewing continues with Chromatose, a Blackberry Sour Beer with lactose. This is only the second sour beer to be featured on the show, and I was definitely impressed.
I had Chromatose in a flight while visiting Two Tides, and the canned beer did not disappoint either. Aromas of blackberry, lactic acid, and sweetness set up the taste while those same flavors dance upon the palate.
The addition of lactose in this beer really set it apart. The lactose, sugar found in milk, I feel softened the beer. It cut back on some of the lactic acid, allowing the tartness to pair well with the sweetness of the blackberry. This is a great beer for the sour lover or someone who my be new to sour beers. Again, I feel that lactose softened the beer and really makes it approachable.
Cheers to Two Tides on a flavorful sour!
