Juice Willis is back in town and this time he's bigger, badder and more bitter, at least according to director (or should that be chief brewer) Ken Arrowsmith. Guy Southern covered the original release for us back in February last year and made mention of the potential for a sequel called Juice Harder; turns out he was on the money.
This time around, Bruce isn't throwing Europeans off buildings, instead he's teamed up with them in the form of German Saphir and Slovenian Cardinal hops, a rarely seen duo sure to bring something different to the party. It's a combination that treats the drinker to passionfruit, strawberry and some earthy, grassy flavours, not to mention some stone fruit late on and a solid grapefruit bitterness.
The yeast characters arrive to finish things off, adding pear and banana to the mix and making for something of a flavour explosion. Juice Willis may be getting older and balder, but he still knows how to pack a punch.
Yippee-ki-yay, murky funsters!
