Many people cannot get enough of that iconic Northwoods beer. While the classic Leinie’s Shandy might be the favorite around the lake, the popular Wisconsin beer brand is always ready to add a new flavor to its line-up. For the first time in its 155 year history, it is brewing something dinner, a sour-style beer. Ready to sip on Leinenkugel’s Juicy Peach?

Sour beer has found its niche in the beer market. While the flavor can be an acquired taste, many people appreciate the tart, almost pucker note that hits on the first sip. Even though the malts are never forgotten, it is those layers of flavor which bring people back for another sip.

Given that sours are considered the oldest type of beer, the style can be quite varied. From quite funky to more subtle, exploring the complexity of this beer style can be enjoyable.

By adding a sour to its line, the Leinenkugel’s Juicy Peach is not just another option for diehard brand fans, it could invite new drinkers to open a can. Given that Leine’s is a more approachable sour, it has a wide reach.

Overall, this beer has a juiciness from the peach. The classic stone fruit seems to capture the flavors of summer. It is easy, familiar yet satisfying. At the same time, there is a pucker from the sour. It is slightly tart. That approachability makes this an enjoyable, sessionable beer.

Thinking about the flavor, it would be delightful at a backyard barbecue. Whether paired with some low and slow ribs or even a plate of fried chicken, the food and beverage pairings are many. Maybe someone can find a way to create a fried perch or walleye recipe with this beer.
