Northern Monk - Patrons Project 17.05 // Insa // Neale's Sour (Purple) Grapes // Five Fruit Gose

Non-stop day where I was even foiled for a wander on my break by the damn rain, however I had a beer recommendation from @alex_gru_74 who says this is the best beer he's ever had!

The can is a 440ml with a vibrant purple pattern that looks like a cross between a bunch of grapes and a few perching butterflies. However, this special edition is a call out to the 15th anniversary of graffiti artist @insa_gram and his 'Heel Pattern' project....it's pretty damned striking.

First smell after a satisfactory can opening is berries, and plenty of them! It smells like someone has just squeezed some sour berries right in front of your nose, and there's also that dark grape richness as well. My admittedly excitable first taste was more of the same with a full force push of hops, a malty base, lashings of fruits & berries and a sour tingle to the tongue. You can really pick out the different grapes, cherries and of course berries with every taste, which is a testament to the quality of the ingredients. Can't disagree with Alex that this is a pretty special gose beer, fantastically fruity and sumptuous.

Cheers everyone!
