Default Sour or Sour Mash Beers?

What are some examples (brands) of sour or sour mash beers?

I would like to try some if I know what to look for.

Easiest sour beer would be hefeweizen. You often swirl the yeast at the end of the pour which adds to the sour flavor. Many also add lemon or orange slice to intensify the sour flavor. Lambics and saisons are sour but would be very difficult to reproduce for the average home brewer.


See my cheap new Keezer Build Here:

Primary: 2 Row IPA
Second Primary: Kolsch-like ale

Keg 1: Blur Moon
Keg 2: Empty
Keg 3: Empty

Bottled: None
