Sweet Spice Fruit Sour
A sour beer which name is as hard to pronounce as its taste is hard to pinpoint. Still, we say Tonkanilla Mangorange and say that the beer tastes just like a cookie. Freshly baked, or maybe even that under-baked deliciousness you get some times. With a sour twist. We could have called it Cookie Cookie Cookie. Monster!
Just before we did this beer, Tonkanilla Mangorange, we did a series of beers with, among others, Tempest Brewing Co from Edinburgh, Scotland. For those beers, Douglas Rowe – head brewer at Tempest – suggested that we put som tonka beans in. Though those beers were imperial stouts, the experience of the tonka beans was so pleasant that we decided to try them in a sour. We paired it with vanilla because those two go hand in hand. Naturally, we also had to add some fruit to the mix. And, Mango and Orange go together like… like… well, like two fruits that go together really well. Hope you like it!
