Sour, Fruit and Gose Beers available to buy online from BeerCraft of Bath.
Sour Beers taste sour. This could be because of the fermentation method or additions of sour fruits. It could just be a slight tang or it could be face scrunchingly sour.
Fruit beers have had fruits added to the beer at different stages of the fermentation process and this can make a variety of different styles including sour, sweet or just for flavour.
Gose is a beer that has had salt added. Usually to a sour style beer, the salt helps bring out the flavours in the beer.
Originally brewed as a collaboration with Kissmeyer Beer, this is Magic Rocks take on a traditional German style Gose, flavoured with fruit, sea buckthorn and sea salt.
Tart, lightly sour, fruity and refreshing with a defined saltiness makes this beer an excellent accompaniment to food.
High Wire Grapefruit is a fruit-infused version of the best-selling West Coast pale ale.
Magic Rock accentuated the original beer’s smoothly composed malt body and lip-smacking citrus character with the addition of 100% natural pink grapefruit flavour.
Juicy, tart and deliciously refreshing, it’s High Wire the Same But Different!
Passion fruit, orange, guava, and yes more orange!
Fruit and beer are a constant in Wild Beers brewing repertoire. This beer combines a boldly hopped pale ale, brimming with tropical fruit character from southern hemisphere hops. These flavours and aromas are then augmented by adding 3 of Brett’s favourite fruits: Passion-fruit, Orange and Guava.
Refreshingly light bodied and perfect for enjoying in the sunshine that is just around the corner.
Alphabet brewing co is a small brewery in Manchester on a mission to make hop forward original craft beers. Juice Springsteen is defiantly the boss when it comes to easy drinking tropical IPAs. At 4.5% ABV this 330ml can is no heavyweight but still brings lots of flavour in the way of mango, passion-fruit, Guava and Mandarin. You get some sweetens as you may expect from a beer with so much fruit but this is balanced out with a nice hop bitterness.

A thirst quenching session beer, Sour Suzy mimics a classic German brewing technique (sour mashing) to impart a light, refreshing tartness.

The grain bill includes a healthy portion of wheat, while citrusy hops lend bright notes to the aroma which are accentuated by the addition of Makrut lime leaves.
Food pairings - Seafood (white fish, mussels, crab), or as a palate cleanser between dishes.

The Rodenbach Grand Cru is the archetypal Flanders red-brown beer. Each of these beers is a unique blend, but they all share a brewing process characteristic of the area surrounding Roeselare and Kortrijk.
The typical sweet and sour taste of a Rodenbach Grand Cru is produced by a two stage fermentation process called mixed fermentation, involving top-fermentation and bacterial fermentation using lactic acid bacteria. The Rodenbach Grand Cru matures in oak foeders, or barrels, over a period of two years, giving the beer a unique, complex fruitiness that is reminiscent of wine.
Rodenbach, the mother beer, is usually one-quarter mature beer to three-quarters young beer. When it comes to Rodenbach Grand Cru, the blend is two-thirds mature beer with one-third of a young brew added.
The 'roodbruin', or red-brown beers, of Flanders can be traced back to the Middle Ages. At that time, hops, the modern preservative ingredient in beer, had yet to reach Belgium but brewers knew that beers containing lactic and ascetic acids kept for longer. This gave rise to the tradition of sour beers, made by cutting a young and newly fermented beer with an older beer that has finished fermenting. The bitterness of hops is barely discernible in this style of beer.

Lindeman’s Cuvée René is - without a doubt - the queen of gueuzes.
A blend of old and young lambics matures in large oak barrels and then undergoes a secondary fermentation in champagne bottles to achieve a dry finish with an effervescent carbonation.
Aromas and flavours of “dusty barnyard” and “earthy funk” can sound somewhat off-putting, but the notes of sour apple, lemon, and wood in this gueuze complement them nicely. Its lasting sour finish and medium body make this beer more adventurous than one might think.
