Two breweries that have disappointed me more often than not, brewing a beer that attempts to marry some of the most divisive styles (sour, brut and loads of adjuncts). What could go wrong? Well … I thought it was great. That despite the first flavour to hit being a metallic clang that reminded me of drinking Fosters from the can. That’s actually a more comforting flavour than you’d think. After that it gets complex. There’s fruit, but not in your face. There’s sour, there’s a biscuity, almost vanilla aspect, then there is the brut champagne dryness. It’s a brut that actually feels like it’s doing something positive. It turns out there is a positive characteristic for taste, rather than Brut puns on the can. It was velvety and thick, tasty, interesting and generally a lovely experience. I appreciate a beer that gives good experience.

Unusual. This will divide the masses. I enjoyed it for the most part and I think I’d try it again but I’d be wary of recommending it to someone.

Haven’t loved the idea of brut IPAs and was even less impressed when I tried one of the Patron’s projects ones but this was phenomenal. Properly recommended

Beautifully blends the best from both styles.

The second in a series of collaborations ahead of Cloudwater’s first festival, Friends & Family & Beer. This unusual beer, created with Evil Twin, fuses a tart, fruity kettle sour with the dryness and complex acidity of Champagne. We did this by blending a passion fruit, mango and pineapple sour with a grape juice-infused Brut IPA fermented using Champagne yeast.
