First up, a bit of background. Catharina sours are a type of fruit sour with origins in the south of Brazil. They're not too dissimilar from the German Berliner Weisse style – they're built upon a pilsner and wheat malt base, kettle soured and then fruited – but are typically higher in alcohol content than such beers. Common fruit types in that part of the world include pineapple and guava – and both feature in Akasha's take.

And it's a beer that does exactly what it promises: the texture is so soft is like a welcome hug, delivering the aforementioned pineapple and guava with a velvet glove. There's nothing overly sour or tart at play here, just easygoing, tropical, refreshing goodness as uplifting as Romy xx's new album of 90s trance-inspired bangers.
