I may be the only person in the country not to have tried Mariana Trench, though I’ve had so many of Weird Beard’s other beers.
So this review is for me and the two people living in caves (with intermittent internet access).
Mariana Trench is brewed with a mix of north and south Pacific hops and it smells lovely, all passion fruit and peaches.
The malting is soft and subtle, but its sticky toffee and lightly baked biscuits provide just enough body to stop Mariana Trench collapsing under its own hoppy weight.
And boy are the hops weighty.
Loads of mango and grapefruit, kiwi and lime juice.
In fact it’s a veritable tropical fruit salad in here, with a side order of sherbet sweeties and a finish that’s fruity and bitter, crisp and dry.
What a great beer this is, but then everyone knows that already.
