Destihl Brewery Wild Sour Series Plum Sour Stout

Wild beers are beers brewed with yeast that ferments spontaneously, and the yeast is not one created in lab but from Mother Nature. These types of beers have different sub-styles with in the style and have a sizeable popularity. With wild beers you get a vastly different flavor profile than from a non-wild beer. Destihl Brewing in Bloomington, Illinois brews a Wild Sour Serious (in cans) and this is Plum Sour Stout, 5.6% ABV with 37 IBUs. This is a sour stout with plums added. Plum Sour Stout pours a pitch-black color with slight brown edges with a beige three finger creamy head that slowly fades into some decent lacing. If you hold the beer up to the light it’s a dark purple color. The aroma is a little tart with a plum flavor, and some faint chocolaty roast. Taste is not what I expected, but I was a little surprised to find nice plum fruit flavors, chocolaty roasted notes with a little chocolate-covered cherry.  I found the plum flavor to be similar to a tart Ocean Spray juice. The mouth feel is on the lighter side of medium and really opens up as it washes over your taste buds. Plum Sour Stout finish a bit sour/tart with nice dark fruit flavor and has nice tart after taste that lingers a bit before fading away. This beer pleasantly surprised me on just how tasty it is. I give this A+. Plum Sour Stout is drinkable for a dark stout. I highly recommend Destihl Brewery Wild Sour Series Plum Sour Stout. I think it’s a great beer for anyone who doesn’t like dark beers and/or stouts. Well balanced tasty and goes not easier than most stouts. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
