Mybeerbuzz .com Highlights Indeed Brewing Lucy Session Sour

14 April 2017

imageI love sampling sour beers, and while I get a chance to sample more than a few, I‘ll

admit this is the first canned sour ale I’ve ever highlighted.  This is Lucy Session Sour from Indeed Brewing in Minneapolis MN and yes it is packaged in 12oz cans.

Lucy is the creation of Indeed head brewer Josh Bischoff.  On first impression, I thought the diamonds on the can were making reference to Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds, but I’m glad to see the beer is a tribute to something more important…Josh’s daughter Lucy.

This beer uses Calypso and El Dorado hops as well as lemongrass, bitter orange peel and passion fruit and according to John it was a “stubborn beer to make.”  So how does it taste?



Lucy pours slightly hazy with lots of passion fruit and citrus in the nose.  The flavors lead with passion fruit, orange & lemon followed by a really pleasant tartness to bring it all together.  I found a surprising hoppy presence with a really drinkable and clean lemon-y finish.  Thankfully our weather cooperated in the tasting as well and I can tell you Lucy is perfect for a warm pre-summer evening with a crisp effervescent mouthfeel and a refreshing citrus finish.

Lucy Sour Session is available now (and year-round) in 12oz cans and I think you’ll find it very sessionable at 4.2%-AbV and very hoppy at 27 IBU.  Be sure to try Indeed Brewing Lucy Session Sour for yourself, and when you do, be sure to let us know what YOU think…like Josh, I think you’ll find it “sour, sassy and unpredictable.”
