If you think mixing beer and fruit is for whimps, then we’re hoping to change your mind! Properly balanced ‘fruit beer’ can be the perfect, refreshing beverage on a hot summer’s day.
The Berliner Weisse style, from the Berlin region in Germany, is an interesting example. While not technically a fruit beer it still fills the brief. It’s actually a sour beer with fruit syrup added.
For our Guava Berliner Weisse, we’ve mixed in (you guessed it) guavas!
Critically, a properly balanced fruit beer should not betray the underlying beer. Fruit beer is, after all, beer first and foremost, with a touch of fruit flavour – and not a cider or wine cooler.
So why not take the ultimate test of your muscle and try one for yourself?
