Most of our members (and a good many of our wholesale customers) are now familiar with the pudding sours from Maltgarden. They’ve become a favourite, mostly I think because they are so different and unique to most other craft styles.
Well, this version of the style is a little different to even the other examples we’ve had before. So we present you Maltgarden’s Blueberry and Glazed Banana Bread Double-Fruited Pudding Sour with Lime!
Now if you are like me, I try to imagine what a beer with lots of ingredients will taste like. But for this beer, I really couldn’t imagine what it would all be like.
So best you open your can and find out. But be warned, this beer will pour very differently if you don’t give the can a gentle roll. It’s OK if you are pouring into a glass in one go, but you’ll need to work a little harder if you are sharing.
And your pouring efforts will most likely produce one of the worst looking beers you’ve seen in a long while. It really does look more like a berry protein shake!
You are rewarded with a very interesting beer though, and it does exactly what it says on the can. Slightly sweet, more tart from the berry and citrus fruits than it is sour, and with this strangely familiar banana bread flavour and texture to the beer. It takes a few sips to take it all in, but I really was impressed with this beer for what it is.
