Pirate Life Kiwifruit & Cherry , ABV 4.5%
Pirate Life’s Kiwifruit and Cherry Sour is ripe for the picking! Brewed with a combination of malted barley and wheat, it has been infused with over 750 kg of fruit, and acquires it’s tartness from the pro-biotic Lactobacillus – so it’s good for the gut! Well, sort of…
Pouring Ruby red, the nose delights with fresh cherry, raspberry (thanks to the Enigma hops) and a soft, lacto driven funk. The palate is clean and moreish, showing tangy kiwifruit and a lick of citrus.
Ocean Reach Painkiller Sour , ABV 8%
An effective Painkiller brewed by the ladies of ORB!
This rich and fruity drink will have you feeling the powerful effects of a Painkiller! Our twist on the Painkiller cocktail. We’ve combined 4 parts pineapple, 1 part toasted coconut and 1 part orange. Shaken or stirred? … fermented if you will? . Best served with some freshly grated nutmeg and a wedge of pineapple.
Hope Imperial Mango Sour , ABV 7%
Welcome to Summer! This 7.0% Imperial strength Berliner Weisse packs a huge mango punch! Mosaic hops add intense tropical aromas to this mouth-puckering sour beer.
