Funktional Fruit Sour Extract Beer Recipe Kit
- Aroma: Soft malt tones underlie a complex yeast-driven matrix of spicy phenolics and fruity esters, with up-front aromas of the chosen fruit puree and an unmistakable tartness.
- Appearance: The base beer is a deep straw color with bright white head and a slight haze. The added fruit puree will create a vibrant color ranging from peach-yellow to red-pink to nearly purple depending on the specific fruit used.
- Flavor: Low to moderate bready maltiness with very low bitterness. Fruit puree is the star of the show in perfect synergy with the mild to medium-high tart sourness provided by the lactobacillus.
- Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with a smooth finish after the swallow and includes a moderate to firm tart bite on the back and sides of the tongue.
- Overall Impression: An incredibly easy drinking beer popping with Belgian yeast notes, deep fruit flavors and a satisfying and thirst-quenching tart finish.

It is still fermenting.
I augmented the recipe with extra wheat DME, extra hops...and added apricot flavor at the bottling stage. And, am happy to report...after 25 years brewing at home...that this is my best ever batch. Crisp, dry and fruity (the cherry comes thru loud and clear). The perfect brew for a hot summer day.
First time brewing a kettle sour. Finished product turned out amazing. Split batch into two secondaries and fermented one on wild berry puree and another on Sour Cherry puree. Both delivered perfect tartness. It was a big hit with the women, gone in 4 weeks.
A couple of additional steps to sour and add the fruit purée but fairly simple and the results are fantastic. My first kettle sour and everyone loved it!
Not too heavy. Great flavor
