Following the positive feedback to the on-premise release of its Citray Sour, farmhouse style sour sour ale, La Sirène is releasing the beer in cans.
La Sirène initially released the beer in kegs at the end of 2017, after it has been conceived as a one-off release following the discovery of a parcel of locally grown oranges. The beer then attracted enough positive feedback for the brewery to re-consider its initial plan and subsequently create its first canned farmhouse sour.
Costa Nikia, founder and chief artisan at La Sirène Brewing, said: “The Citray Sour is a newly canned beer here at La Sirène that excites us to no end. Finally a permanent sour in our range in such a great format. The heady citrus aromas from Victorian-grown citrus against the natural sourness from our brewery is a perfect match.
“The Citray Sour very much represents everything we love to do here at La Sirène, namely creating world class Farmhouse Ales (including Saisons) which showcase the provincial nature and versatility of these diverse and delicious styles.”
The straw coloured beer has a 4.5 per cent ABV and has been fermented with the La Sirène’s house yeast before being soured by natural microbes living within the brewery’s walls.
