Sur Citra by To Øl
Sour Pale, 5.5%
Sur Citra's zesty lemon aroma continues to the palate where it meets unripe satsuma, grapefruit, and soft wheat. Brewed at De Proef in Belgium, this intensely hopped sour pale is dry but extremely refreshing.
The live tasting of this beer was on 22nd October 2020 #BeerBods

After several years of brewing beer in their kitchen and selling it to their friends, Tore Gynther and Tobias Emil Jensen founded To Øl in 2010. Their first beer was a collaboration with Mikkeller and, with such an auspicious start, they were always going to do well. Coupled with their relentless pursuit of big flavours and perfectly balanced beers, they have garnered a well-deserved reputation for innovation and technical skill.
They started out as Gypsy Brewers, lending in on other breweries spare capacity to produce their beers. By 2012 they had made it onto Ratebeer’s list of Top 100 breweries in the world, by 2014 they were in the top ten. No mean feat considering they did it all without a brewery to call home.
This all changed last year when the To Øl team took over a former food factory in the Western part of Zealand, Denmark, to begin building their new, state of the art brewery. Now up and running, To Øl city as it is known locally, is not just home to the brewery. In true Gypsy Brewing style, To Øl have opened up the facility to craft beverage producers from across Denmark. Allowing a number of businesses previously limited by space and resources to flourish. It has quickly become a collective of the most talented craft beverage producers in Denmark, from Run Distillers to Cider and Kombucha producers.
For tonight’s BeerBods Plus offering we have Sur Citra, a sour pale ale. When it comes to this style of beer there’s probably no better brewery on the globe than To Øl. It was a no brainer to put it in the box. Sur Citra's zesty lemon aroma continues to the palate where it meets unripe satsuma, grapefruit, and soft wheat. Intensely hopped for a dry but extremely refreshing finish.
