Lava Lava Mango Raspberry Sour from Deep Creek Brewing Co, our friends across the ditch! Been saving this one for a special occasion and with the release yesterday of @toolmusic new single Fear Inoculum I think it’s apt. @deepcreekbrewingco have been crushing it lately with some really tasty brews, this is no exception.
Pours a deep orange/red with a reasonable foamy head for a sour that dissipated quickly. Strong aromas of raspberries, mango and tropical fruits. Raspberry at the front of the palate dominates with a subtle mango at the back. A nice dry tart mouthfeel with just the slightest hint of bitterness and some strong carbonation to really fizz the raspberry flavour out adding a bit of drama to the overall affect. I could crush a case of this and at 4.5% I might! Thanks you crazy kiwis you have done it again. Tim
