Sourdough not sour?

My starter is just over a month old, active as the Blob(left it out of the fridge by mistake one day and it tried to eat the counter), and gives great texture to bread, pizza, crepes, pancakes, and tortillas.

But it is not sour. Made it from white whole wheat flour, switched to bread flour(White Lily), and I feed it every three or so days at 100% hydration.

Is it the nature of the beast to be less sour sometimes?
