White Hag Brewing Co. The Púca (3.5%)

This beer has the most delightfully long fruity aftertaste.
It’s just lovely.
The Púca is a Dry Hopped Lemon Sour brewed with ginger, wild berries, rosehips, hibiscus and ginger and I like it very much indeed, but boy is it tart.
This is certainly not a beer for the feint hearted, my first sip had my lips puckered tightly and my gums receding.
Pouring a sexy pink, the beer smells of rhubarb and custard sweets and orchard flowers.
And on taking a swig, after that first initial hit of super dry tartness, the beer slowly develops on your tongue, bringing you soft raspberries and blackcurrant, honey, brioche and waffles, bramble jelly, lemon zest, sherbet, honey and almonds, before the sourness sweeps back in with its steel edged dryness, making you reach for another mouthful.
Lovely stuff.
