Here’s what we’re pouring on our cereal this week…
Pleasantside by Parkside Brewery
Fruited ale • 4.8% ABV • 10 IBU • 473 mL tall can
This mixed berry ale by Port Moody’s Parkside Brewery is sunshine on a rainy day. The addition of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries give this bubbly little number a pinkish hue and some big berry notes with a light and dry finish.
Raspberry Vanilla Sour by Category 12
Fruited sour ale • 7.9% ABV • 473 mL tall can
Central Saanich’s Category 12 Brewing have released the latest instalment of their ongoing Periodic Series with Raspberry Vanilla Sour. Expect big berry notes with tart acidity and a thick, chewy body. It’s a fruit smoothie for grown-ups, basically. And at 7.9% ABV, you’d best be careful with this one.
Radegast by House of Funk Brewing
Blended Double Sour IPA • 8.0% ABV • 473 mL tall can
Named for Radegast, the Slavic god of hospitality, the latest by North Vancouver’s House of Funk features oats, wheat, and malted barley, and is aggressively hopped with Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe. After fermentation and conditioning, Radegast was then blended with a foeder-aged sour ale, to add some acidity and depth.
