This, brewed in collaboration with Beavertown, is the best Siren beer I’ve had for ages.
It’s a Farmhouse Ale brewed with chilli, honey and lime and it’s earthy and round and delicious.
It pours a pale gold and smells of damp garden flower borders, decent enough but nothing special.
But it’s when you take a swig that you find just what this beer has to offer.
There’s a lovely chewy caramel and brioche, toffee and Belgian waffle malt and the yeast adds an earthy spiced warmth, alongside which the hops are a sharp fresh nettle sting, but it’s the other ingredients that work the magic here.
The lime is fresh and sharp and fruity, the honey is sticky and soft and comforting, and the chilli adds a gentle prickle to the finish of this superb bottle of beer that went very well with my Sunday evening meal of charcuterie, cheese and salad.
