Inspired by the discussion about a new style list https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1HqTu-FkP1rbdONm_cOT1lpJhXOUYNPcbV8IF2QcrST4/edit input is needed on topics.
Proposals are to split Gose, Berliner Weisse and Sour / Wild Ale out with an extra ‘flavoured’ category for each. Flavoured in this case primarily means fruited but would also be for other extras.
- Yes but only for fruit
- Yes but not all of them
- Yes but just create one flavoured sour style that fits all three
I’m surprised that people are in favour of splitting these (regular/flavoured) but not in the case of the witbier…
Is this a traditional reason? Or maybe it’s only because I’m from a region where fruited witbiers are more frequent than non-fruited witbiers and that may be not the case elsewhere.
Where do we put wild lagers? I tend to classify them in wild/sour.
Wild/sour beer might be more suited…
So we should change “ale” to “beer”
Probably, Sour/wild is currently global style where everything non-traditional sour or with brett is put in.
This is definitely not the case everywhere.
