West By Three Brewing Co. Berry White IPA (7.1%)

This is part of West By Three’s Small Batch Pilot Series and it is, simply put, stunningly good.
It’s an oat heavy IPA with a splash of lactose and lots of blackberries, raspberries and rhubarb, and it pours a pink tinged gold with a fuzzy head and smells of summer fruit compote.
There’s a very good caramel and ice cream cornet malt that also gives you some runny honey and shortcake, and the hopping is a pithy dry hit of hedgerow greenery, hazel leaves, nettle tea and lemon zest.
But what makes this beer so good is how the fruit, which is round and fleshy and fresh, isn’t allowed to go overly tart because the lactose pulls it back with a creamy vanilla kiss that makes the beer feel smooth and luscious.
Superb.
