Heavy Seas Unveils Curbside Exclusive Release: Spectrology Sour

Heavy Seas Beer in Baltimore, Maryland has announced the release of a new limited release from its 15 Barrel Brewhouse: Spectrology Sour. Full details are below.


BALTIMORE — Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the next release from its 15 Barrel Brewhouse, Spectrology Sour: a Tropical Sour Ale. Brewed with pineapple, passion fruit and mango purees, Spectrology Sour is tart, and freakishly tropical. This sour and juicy treat is best enjoyed in the company of other ghost hunters. Spectrology Sour will be available in 4-packs of 16oz cans during a curbside can release on April 30th.

“We wanted to create a freakishly tropical sour for the spring” says Heavy Seas Associate Brand Manager, Amanda Zivkovic. “Spectrology Sour has layers and layers of fruit flavor in every sip!”

“Always looking to work with new products and techniques, we’ve employed a unique lactic acid producing strain of yeast to create this tart, fruity sour,” comments Heavy Seas Brewmaster Christopher Leonard. “Pineapple, mango, and passion fruit purees lend a bright tropical nose to the beer.  The quenching tang and zesty mouthfeel provide a balanced compliment to this unique treat.”

Spectrology Sour’s label artwork was designed by local Baltimore artist, Chris Shiner, of Chris Shiner Art. All the taproom exclusive beer labels will be designed by Shiner in 2021.
