Beer Review 57 // Jelly King by Bellwoods

Well this week for work I was sent off to Craft Beer Market Ottawa for an event. The best thing about this night was the fact that they serve a permanent tap of Bellwoods beer. The beer on that tap constantly rotates depending on what they can get in, tonight it was Jelly King. As I sat there getting ready to work, I came to the shocking discovery that I had yet to review a Jelly King on the blog, worst yet I hadn't reviewed a Bellwoods beer at all. Now that has to change, so here is Jelly King.


Name: Jelly King
Style: Sour
Country: Canada (Ontario-Toronto)
ABV: 5.6%
Commercial Fluff: "This mixed fermentation ale is soured with a 5-strain house blend of lactobacillus, and heavily dry-hopped with citra. The result is juicy, sour, and thirst-quenching. Lots of fuzzy peach, tangerine, and cedar hop aroma and flavours with very low bitterness."

Own Opinion

Pour: From tap
Sight: The pour is a hazy darker yellow with a crisp white head on top. The bar is poorly lit so sorry for the picture that fails to truly capture the colour.
Aroma: Sour and fruity. From the aroma alone you know it's going to taste sweet and tart and refreshing.
Taste: Fruity, lemon citrus comes through along with the tangerine. The finish is lingering and drying making you want to drink more.

Would I buy it again? Yes. In fact we ordered three more of them throughout the event. It's just a great beer and good example of the style. Nothing to challenging for newbies to the style whilst still being interesting enough for the long toothed beer drinker. If you can find it treat yourselves you will not be disappointed.

Have you tried it? Drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
