Good fruit beers are meant for sharing and Thornbridges fruit beer
offering is no exception. Aged with raspberries in burgundy barrels, this strong sour red ale
won the silver medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup (result!). Days of Creation is smooth and
complex with raspberry fruitiness and a hint of lemon zest with a dry finish.
This is an iconic fruit beer that really sets the benchmark for cherry
beers. The aroma is heavy cherry and a little almond, almost like a cherry bakewell! It’s
smooth, and not too sweet or tart. No boozy burn, so easy drinking. A must try if you’re a fruit
Raspberries take centre stage in this intensely fruity, low ABV beer
brewed in Vlezenbeek, Belgium by the Lindemans family. Spritzy carbonation and a slight tart
acidity temper the jammy sweetness, making Lindemans Framboise delightfully refreshing and
easy-drinking. A perfect dessert beer.
Lindeman's Pecheresse pours a sparkling golden colour but it's really
the wonderfully interesting, sweet-yet-sour, flavour that makes this fruit beer stand out.
Expect big notes of, obviously, peaches alongside a subtle citrus character and its typical bold
sourness. A dry, refreshing finish gives way to a lingering sweetness that has each sip going
down almost way too easy. This is a beautiful fruit lambic.
Pours a deep raspberry shade, and crammed with raspberry flavour with a
scent of cherry too! This is quite a sweet pour, but the malty base just keeps it from being
overpowering. A great Summer tipple.
Liefmans Fruitesse is a classic Belgian fruit beer. Aromas and flavours
are dominated by cherries, raspberries, and other berries along with a bit of marzipan.
Satisfyingly sweet but not cloying, the fruits are on full-display and are accented by a bit of
extra sweetness with no hops to distract. Moderately carbonated yet smooth and creamy, this
sparkling ruby-red drink is an enjoyable fruit beer.
Firestone go back to there vineyard roots with this one, made by
chucking some chardonnay and wine grapes into the fermentation. You also get some hibiscus in
the mix. The result gives you the best of both beer and rosé wine. A superb, light and
refreshing fruit beer for the Summer months.
With spontaneously fermented cider as the mash liquor, this is an
altogether different kind of beer. It’s quirky, curious and interesting in every way and there’s
an almost gourmet experience to it, no less than you’d expect from the likes of Põhjala, To Øl
and Michelin starred chef Christian Gadient! Using cider, fresh apples and rye from Estonia,
it’s tart, salty, spicy and sour all at once.
This fruit beer from To Øl packs in strawberry, blackcurrant,
tangerine, mango, papaya, passion fruit, cherry and raspberry. The red berries are dominant
throughout with some subtle stonefruit, juicy sweetness peeking in as well. It’s tart but
lightly sweet with quite a boozy finish. It’s like a party in your mouth and all the fruits

In that case, you need to get your hands on our Craft Beer Advent Calendar.
Pairing beer and food together isn’t all rules and science. That would make for a terribly boring dinner party! Instead, it’s the art of taking a good beer, some good food and partnering them together to make something even better. It’s the adventure of discovering what works, what doesn’t and what you like. It’s you taking a bite, taking a sip and then declaring your undying love for that imperial stout and chocolate cake.
Barrel-ageing beers is not a new thing, but it is getting more and more popular, and has probably never been as inventive. Adrian Tierney-Jones explores the new wave of ageing beer in wood
