6 Fruit Beers All Beer Lovers Need To Try
1. Park Life Passion Fruit Ale – Bomber Brewing (Vancouver, BC)
This refreshing blonde, fruit ale from Bomber Brewing has been infused with passion fruit in the brewing process that results in a crisp, tart flavour and full tropical aroma.
ABV%: 4.5 IBU: 15
2. Guava Islander – Coronado Brewing (San Diego, CA)
Tropical fruit meets tropical vibes in this “guavacated” version of Coronado’s Islander IPA. Brewed with the classic West Coast combo of Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops, this beer gets the tropical treatment with a hefty dose of fresh guava puree. The result is a surprisingly smooth, unfiltered IPA bursting with tropical goodness that’s sure to put you in that island state of mind.
ABV%: 7 IBU: 7
3. Cherazz – Big Rock Brewing (Calgary, AB)
Brewmaster Paul Gautreau sets his sights on Belgium’s centuries-old tradition of fine fruit beers. Imported Belgian yeast is blended with dark sweet cherries, sour cherries, and tart raspberries. The result, a lively and refreshing brew. Tastes great with cheesecake and other rich, fruit complimentary desserts.
4. Kasteel Rouge – Van Honsebruck Castle Brewery (Brussels, Belgium)
Kasteel Rouge is a unique blend of Kasteel Donker and a sweet cherry liqueur. This fruity beer makes a great aperitif on a sunny terrace. It’s certainly a beer for lovers of sweet cherries with an overpowering aroma of the fruit. The cherries get the better of the malt in the Kasteel Donker mother beer, although it contributes touches of chocolate and pepper to remind you it’s there. It is surprisingly easily digestible for quite a strong beer.
5. Van Diest Fruli Strawberry Beer – Brouwerij Huyghe (East Flanders, Belgium)
Fruli is a high quality Strawberry Belgian fruit beer, produced at a craft brewery in Melle near Ghent in Belgium. It is a unique blend of white beer and strawberry juice.
