Rodenbach’s first-ever canned beer (and one of four Roedenbach sours on this list) was a tremendous success in the U.S. and with good reason – as one of the highest-scoring beers of 2017, Rodenbach’s fruited dark sour beer was complex, lightly sweet and easily transportable. It also marked a terrific counterpoint to all the lighter summer sours that wanted to glom onto the “summer beer” trend.

An amazing rendition of a Flanders Red Ale, Rodenbach’s Alexander has only been brewed twice in history – the last time being 1999. A blend of 2/3rd Rodenbach aged two years in oak foeders and 1/3 young ale, this incredible brewing achievement features an intricate interplay of fruitiness, sourness and woodiness. An astonishing sour from one of the best sour beer breweries on the planet.

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.
