One Drop Brewing Blueberry Sour

One Drop Brewing Co

Published September 24, 2019

Almost immediately after opening, One Drop sent off some of their first batches of beer to be judged at the Australian International Beer Awards… and scored a clutch of gold medals for their troubles. They were the only Australian brewery to win a gold medal in the Fruit Beer category, for their limited release Blueberry Sour. Of course, that batch didn’t last long - can you blame anyone? - so One Drop has done us all a favour by brewing it again.

It sits in the glass a deep crimson tinged with purple, the solid colour undisturbed by its low carbonation. The taste resembles grape juice or Ribena, with the sweetness balanced by a light tannic feel and a pluck of tartness in the back of the mouth.

In many ways, it’s a surprisingly simple little thing. But to work with the ingredients - including around 200g of blueberries per litre - and achieve such a balanced profile, such rounded flavours rather than just a sour blast? No mean feat.
