Red Hill Temptation (new look)

Red Hill Brewery

Published November 15, 2019

Temptation is one of those Red Hill beers that's been around so long it feels like it predates the entire Aussie craft beer scene. And not just because of its longevity. The fact it's such a classically-inspired Belgian style beer makes it stand apart, especially as they've resisted the (shit, I've done it...) temptation to play around with it and bastardise it for contemporary times (even if the 2019 release is 8.5 rather than the past 8 percent ABV).

What's more, like the Imperial Stout, it's a beer that's dialled in a treat: pale yellow in colour with the slightest of haze, you'll pick up citrus, spices, lemon, a little banana and a zesty, drying bitterness that balances the body-building booze. Welcome back, old friend.
