2 Brothers, the reigning Champion Small Australian Brewery, has taken a trip down Memory Lane for its latest limited release. The Trickster is a beer that has spent so long in hibernation, it predates The Crafty Pint Pint by 18 months or more. Those with long memories may recall one of their earliest beers; for everyone else it's a Mandarin Witbier (AKA a Belgian witbier brewed with mandarins) that was last brewed five years ago. Back then it was filtered before release, this time around head brewer Andrew Ong tells us: "I went out on a limb this time and left it with the yeast in!" The result, he adds is a beer that's "tasting special" too. If you want to try it, you'd best head to the source as, for now at least, it's only pouring at their Beer Hall and there are no plans to package it.
