Ölbeat 221: Sori Delirious

Brewery: Sori Brewing
Country: Estonia
Style: Imperial IPA
Abv: 8,1 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy dark orange with a large white head. Aroma has orange, mango and pineapple (a fresh tropical fruit salad, now we're there!). Taste starts with fresh sweet and bitter citrus. Sweet orange and mango juice takes over with a bitter twist of grapefruit. Near the finish the sweet fruity bitterness is accompanied by piny and spicy flavours. Aftertaste has sweet fruity bitter start and lasting piny dry finish.

It's great to find after a break the reason why good Double and Imperial IPA's are my original favorites. Damn, this is insanely delicious. The sweet fruits. The bitterness. The piny finish. Somehow I managed to just taste and forget this at CBH festival last summer. Big mistake. I'm truly sorry, Sori people.


From all the songs named Delirious I chose this piece of disco house because of the distinctive aroma and flavour of fresh sweet fruits. The beer and the song share the unapparent "happy" side of delirium. And today it's techno-Wednesday for once.
