1. Pale Sour Ale, Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown, New York
Here’s one to get excited about from Brewery Ommegang. The Kriek-esque Rosetta was such a big hit last year that the brewery decided to collaborate with the Belgian sister brewery, Liefmans, this year as well. The result? A new year-round offering: Pale Sour Ale. The beer undergoes mixed fermentation (indicating both standard beer yeast and other strains that offer complexity and tartness) in copper vats. Over time, brewers blend older batches with younger ones to achieve the appropriate balance. The final product is clear and golden with a sweet and sour flavor profile.
