Wander Beyond - Mini Strawberry Milkshake
Three hours sleep last night, so I was like an unattractive zombie for most of the day which must have been harrowing for everyone. Anyway, I had this interesting beer to blog tonight as we're featuring it in our next newsletter, so it was time for my honest opinion... Joined by my other half on the train home, but still managed too focus on the job at hand. First off a really cool can with a mellow pink background topped by all manner of strange insect, crab like and bug type things in eye catching vibrant colours.
Now opening the can it was just a strong strawberry hit to start with, not quite as punchy as I expected, but a really nice rolling sweet smell that reaches the nose. The first swig was one of the most interesting I've had since starting my Tipsy-Train blog adventures. A light, but firm strawberry taste being carried by really nice hops in the background to give you that beer definition. Then the back end of the drink comes with a delicious milky, creamy sense that reminds you of that strawberry milkshake you used to crave. The hops are still there to remind you of the 3% ABV in this 440ml can, but it's just a delightful combination of two of my favourite tipples!
After that the creamy milkshake smell just pours out of the can, sucking you in for that hoppy milky combo that you just want to stick a straw right into. One point is that a 330ml can maybe more appropriate as the taste is very particular for some and I definitely wouldn't knock back one after another, but that would be a minor gripe.
39 minutes and still sipping on this cracking beer. Very different, but very recommended by me!
