Life On Tap Episode #358: Forbidden Fruit (Subversive Malting and Brewing Forbidden Fruit - Black Currant Fruited Sour Ale)

A couple years ago while in the Catskills, Dan was introduced to Subversive’s Forbidden Fruit Black Currant Sour, sharing with you now.

Subversive Malting and Brewing Forbidden Fruit Black Currant Sour

STYLE: Fruited Sour Ale (Simple Sour)
INGREDIENTS: Black currant juice
ABV: 6.0%
AVAILABILITY: 16 oz. cans/Draft (Seasonal)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Clear, deep red/magenta with a thin, rose-tinted head.


Red fruit, with a mixture of black cherry and a hint of black currant.


Medium tartness followed by the mixed berries continuing from the nose.


Light in the palate and fairly dry.


If you can, go visit and also try the slushy version of this too during the warmer months when they produce it. Pairing-wise, ice cream/gelato, custards, and related desserts would be great with this.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
