Two Birds Brewing Warrior Woman XPA 2020

Two Birds Brewing (Lion/Kirin)

Published March 5, 2020

Two Birds may have seen their partnership with their local AFLW club, the Western Bulldogs, handed to interlopers from far further west but they continue to champion women – in beer, sport and otherwise – with the release of another International Women's Day beer.

Their 2020 Warrior Woman is an XPA and is, for the most part, one in the Balter mould – tight, citrusy aromas, a lightly sweet malt character, some pineapple on the back palate and a lean, drying bitterness. But there's something more lurking within – the P also stands for "peach", with homegrown peaches from co-founding Bird Jayne Lewis in the mix too. They make their presence known more to taste than on the nose, even contributing a touch of tartness, but do so without overpowering the Pink Boots hop blend of Warrior, Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra.
