Fuggles & Warlock are busy keeping beer weird with their The Last Strawberry Witbier release. From the bomber bottle this fruit-infused summer beer pours as a cloudy straw colour with a finger and a half of head that settles without a trace. The Last Strawberry smells strong of sweet strawberries, reminiscent of a strawberry sauce that you may put on your Sunday morning pancakes. The sweetness is strong but with it comes a light wheat tone from the Witbier nature of the brew. The beer is light bodied and has a distinct strawberry tone to it with a mellow sweetness. The sweetness that was so strong in the aroma is actually mellower than you may expect. The sessionable and light nature of the Witbier style comes through in spades while a strawberry tone and slight sweetness is there to add a unique and summer twist on the style. Strawberry beer is a little weird and may not be for everyone but Fuggles & Warlock has done a great job of balancing the sweet strawberry flavour with a smooth and sessionable Witbier.
