Beer Review 101 // F is for Fruit Salad by Evil Twin

Damn this summer heat is killer, with phase three happening in Ontario as I type this I am left dreaming of bygone beers and trips postponed for now. One trip that had been planned was a tripped down to Brooklyn New York. To visit the all-new Evil Twin Brewery and taproom. Fingers crossed we can do it in 2021. So with feels of bygone days I am continuing the write-ups of old notes:


F is for Fruit Salad

Style: Sour - Gose

Country: USA, New York.

ABV: 4.5%

Commercial Fluff: Gose-style Ale brewed with Salt and Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Peach and Blood Orange added"; "Let's face it - we all like to put labels on things. It just makes us feel more comfortable. What assumptions have people made about you based on your race, religion, gender, the way you dress, or even the beer you drink? We did in fact label this beer for your convenience. It has a fresh tartness, a twist of salt and a balanced fruitiness - apparently a complete reflection of your personality. We hope you like what this label says about you?"

Own Opinion

Conveniently the list of fruits makes up a rather excellent fruit salad! The pour is a rather hazy orange amber colour that I can assume comes from the Blood Orange, but I honestly thought it would look murkier, you would think blueberry and blackberry would mess up the colour somewhat. The head is lively and white but shrinks down quickly to less than a finger amount. After sticking my nose in for a good sniff I am greeted purely by peach, once again being surprised by this beer, I was expecting citrus, orange, not peach, but here we are with peach, smells great backed up by the salt.

Then the all-important sip. The taste is peach all the way, a bit acidic and salty unsurprisingly. As the beer slightly warms up there is a slight presence of blue/blackberry but not much, it's rather on the sweeter end than the sour lip-smacker I was hoping for. Overall a great fruity beer, that drank very easily on a hot summer night.
