Brewed in collaboration with Brouwerij ‘t Ij, this is the first Thornbridge beer for a very long time that I have actually enjoyed.
And it’s all down to the hopping.
This is a Wheat Beer brewed with Galaxy and Mosaic which gives a really big fresh sherbet fizz and kiwi, gooseberry, lime, nectarine and satsuma fruit salad of a flavour.
There’s still the overly sugary thing I have come to dislike so much in Thornbridge beers, but here it works well amongst the creaminess of the wheat malts.
You find caramel and brioche buns, honey and a hint of lavender too, and the aroma is a big blast of herbs and fruit salad sweets.
All this and a long and crisply bitter finish.
This is how I remember Thornbridge being in the past.
