Another Sunday, another delicious Squealer….
As soon as I saw this on the taplist at Tru Bru, I had to get hold of it. Both breweries have excellent track records for brewing craft beer and as soon as I heard about the collab in good beer week this year, I have kept an eye out ever since…. And here it is!
Style: Pepperberry Saison
Pours a golden orange with strong white head.
On The Nose:
Some amazing florals: lots of sweet berries, tropical fruits and bubblegum with a peppery background.
Super, super fresh. Great tropical fruit notes, a crisp and refreshing bitterness with notes of drying bergamot tea and bubblegum. The pepperberry gives a subtle hum in the background, adding to the bitterness. As it comes to room temperature, the yeasty/ Saison notes starts to come out, adding another layer of depth to the palate.
This beer gives you a lot to think about, A LOT to think about. This thing is layered up the ying- yang….. layered with tropical fruit, bubblegum and bergamot all tied together with the hum and sweetness of the pepperberry. I am super impressed with this beer, it is completely unique and it has been an honor and a privilege to just get hold of it. Just sensational.
