On occasion, writing about beer for a living can teach you things about the wider world of which you might otherwise pass through life utterly oblivious. Case in point: fruit. While most fruited beers feature species you know well, occasionally you're thrown a curveball: maybe a hybrid like pluots; occasionally something that's fallen out of fashion like the medlar, said to be suitable for eating only after being left to rot.

So, when Moo Brew's late summer sour arrived with the title Anotherberry, I settled in for another lesson. What I got instead was something rather more straightforward, a beer designed to deliver simple pleasures in far-from-simple times. The "another" refers to the fact the brewers decided to add blackcurrants alongside the more commonly seen-in-beer raspberries. The University of Life can wait for another day.

Once in your glass, Anotherberry Sour sits somewhere between flashing red alarm and a Ribena watered down for a child whose teeth you don't want rotting. Once knocked back, it reminds me of a lightly sparkling, berry-laced mineral water with just a lick of cleansing tang; with alcohol content kept sub-4 percent ABV it couldn't be much more refreshing either.
