Drekker has done it again with their latest sour release – the Chonk Pineapple Sour. This beer is an absolute juicy delight that transports you straight to the tropics with its intense pineapple aroma and flavor. The sour base beer style provides the perfect tart and acidic canvas for the fresh pineapple character to truly shine.

The pour produces a slightly hazy, glowing yellow liquid capped by a frothy white head. Swirling the glass releases an amazing aroma of ripe pineapple, with notes of tangy citrus and a subtle funky undertone.

The first sip instantly coats your tongue with a burst of sweet pineapple juice flavor balanced by a zingy lactic sourness. It has the perfect level of puckering tartness without being overwhelming or acetic. The pineapple comes through bright and juicy, tasting like biting into a perfectly ripe tropical fruit.

As it warms, some mild oak and vanilla notes emerge, rounding out the intense fruit flavors. The mouthfeel is full and creamy for the style, with a dry, quenching finish that begs for another sip.

Overall, Drekker has crafted one of the most authentic and delicious pineapple sour ales on the market with Chonk. It’s incredibly drinkable and refreshing while packing a huge pineapple punch. This is a world-class fruited sour that needs to be sought out.
