The Musketeers Brewery, Sint-Gillis-Waas, Belgium – Troubadour Jack’s Precious IPA, 5.9%, 330ml bottle.
The brewers of the famous Troubadour Magma have done an American West Coast style IPA! Expect citrus and tropical fruits on the nose along with a punchy resinous hop flavour and balanced bitterness.
Unity Brewing, Southampton, UK – Congregate, Belgian Pale Ale, 4.2%, 440ml can.
Congregate is a sessionable Belgian Pale ale, inspired by the hoppy Pilsners of the Czech Republic and the ‘Patersbiers’ or ‘Fathers Beers’ brewed by Belgian Trappist monks to drink at mealtimes. Full of flavour but low ABV, ideal for the summer!
Collective Arts, Hamilton, Canada – Saint of Circumstance, 4.7%, 330ml can.
A new one for us from Canada. An easy drinking and refreshing hoppy blonde ale. The lemony flavour notes brought by Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops are enhanced by the addition of seasonal citrus zest.
Beerbliotek, Gothenburg, Sweden – A Moment of Clarity, Session IPA, 4.7%, 330ml can.
This beer was first brewed in 2017 as the official beer of the Gothenburg Beer week, and people loved it so much that Beerbliotek decided to brew it again, and again, and again. Juicy, fruity and sessionable, what’s not to like?
Brooklyn Brewery, New York, USA – Defender IPA, 5.5%, 355ml can.
Brooklyn Brewery aren’t just famous for making a lager! This hoppy golden IPA featuring strong notes of tropical fruit and a malty backbone balanced with decent hop bitterness.
Evil Twin, New York, USA – Sour Bikini, Sour Pale, 3.0%, 355ml can.
You might remember Evil Twin Bikini Beer from the May beer box. Well this is Sour Bikini! All the drinkability from before with mouth puckering sour notes to create the ultimate refresher beer.
De Halve Maan, Brussels, Belgium – Brugs Tarwebier, Wit Beer, 5.0%, 330ml bottle.
Continuing on our theme of refreshing summer beers, nothing better than a Belgian wit beer on a hot day! This Brugs Tarwebier is a classic example of the style. Citrus and spice provided by the addition of orange peel and coriander to the brew.
If you chose ‘I like all beers’
Põhjala, Tallinn, Estonia – Õhtu, Porter, 7.4%, 330ml bottle.
Loving the Pohjala beers at the moment, and although it’s the summer we always feel like drinking a dark beer. This is an easy going porter brewed with oats and rye, bursting with vanilla and chocolate flavours. Just wait till the sun goes down…
If you chose ‘No dark beers’
Mahrs Braü, Bamberg, Germany – U, ‘Ungespundet’ Lager, 5.2%, 330ml can.
‘Ungespundet’ means unfiltered. We visited Mahrs back in May and had this beer served from a wooden cask, it’s a special lager beer with a full-bodied smooth-malt character, pleasantly tart and lightly carbonated. These beers are very sought after and this is one of the few times its been available in the UK, lucky you!
