Beer review time and it's a really local brewery for me: Bicycle Craft Brewery. I always enjoy visiting these guys as they have a great team and are always coming up with some fun beers and hosting great events. For me their Jalapeno beer is truly a highlight of their beers and worth getting when they brew it. But for today's review I will be drinking Blackberry Milkshake IPA. The newest flavour in their milkshake range.
"Brewed with lactose, vanilla beans and a pile of blackberry puree, this IPA is fruity, refreshing and subtly sweet. Aromas of fresh berries and vanilla are complemented by a tropical and fruity flavour with a subtle vanilla aftertaste. Generously hopped with Mosaic, the tropical fruit and blackberry flavours linger."
Sight: Pours a light purplish/pink. Capped with a nice white foam head. Looks interesting enough, though if it had been an intense purple it would have been amazing.
Aroma: Blackberries in the aroma, smells like a time when I use to add blackcurrent to my beers in my teens. A hint of tropical fruit hidden in there too.
Taste: Blackberry is definitely there along with a bitter finish I wasn't expecting. Not as sweet as the other ones they have produced and the vanilla was sadly lost on me. Easy drinking thanks to the blackcurrent.
Would I buy it again? Don't think I would, it was fun to try but the other flavours: Guava & Mango they have produced so far, have been a lot more superior in flavour and style.
I'm excited to see what flavour they come out with next, raspberries or cherries would be great. I also hope they revisit the Guava flavour again as that was by far my favourite. So if you are ever in Ottawa go visit them and purchase a flight!
As always thanks for checking my review out. Cheers.
