Named after the Academy Award-winning surrealistic film from Spanish director Luis Bunuel, this deliciously subtle Fruit Lambic from Brooklyn Brewery is one of the brewery’s famed 750-mL limited releases. Featuring gorgeous hits of raspberry and pleasing sourness throughout, this one is sure to do more than discreetly charm any sour beer fans.

Read Review

The first of three Jester King beers on this list, Atrial Rubicite is perhaps the Austin, Texas brewery’s best-known creation. Intensely sour with funky elements and a predominant raspberry aroma and flavor, this flawless Fruit Lambic hits all the right spots for fruited sour beers.

These kinds of lists are subjective and as such somewhat immune from critcism. Still any list of best sour beers without beers from Tilquin, Drie Fonteinen or Cantillon is diffucult to take seriously. Gentlepeople, back to the drawing board!

Hi Pags, Thanks for your comment! As the disclaimer says in the introduction, this list only represents beers that our judges have reviewed in our Official Review. As such, there are a huge number of world-class sours not featured here because our judges have not reviewed them.
