Is there an image that more colourfully conjures a tropical paradise than a pineapple catching a wave? If there is, the chances are good Mr Banks will have a go when summer fully rolls around. Yes, the Seaford based family brewery may have streamlined the look of its core range, but they're still having fun with the look of their eclectic limited release beers, including this, Hawaii 5-Gose, a Copacabana-coloured can filled with a gose laced with a mixture of guava, mango and pineapple.
It’s also the brewery’s first fully fledged sour release, with Tart City a blackberry saison rather than a beer loaded with lacto. The trio of tropical fruits keep the sourness relatively subdued, making for a slightly tart and refreshing tropical fruit mix that brings to mind a homemade cordial or fancier mineral water. But for grown ups.
