Just like you, but different
That’s right, a proper beer festival beer pack for my Herevana experience. Herevana, a beer festival at my place.
Because they’re in a list that I might or might not follow I though that I’d start with the Sours, and choice is dessert for starters, it’s a bit confusing. Lets start with Behemoth Just a Little Slice
Behemoth (Chur) Brewing Company make the Behemoth (Chur) – Just a Little Slice in their place in 🇳🇿 Auckland, New Zealand – this one is a Sour / Wild Beer – Flavored with an ABV of 4.5%, and this can is 1.2 standard drinks of beer and about 135 calories a serve size.
Cheesecake sour ale with Passionfruit and Mango. Just have yourself a little slice. Go on.
There is no mistaking the Passionfruit – it’s very distinctive – and there’s no mistaking the mango when you taste this. I’m not kidding when I say this has easy slotted in in first place of the 8.
A lovely lovely beer, which has all the aroma, then all the taste and a bit more taste thrown on top for laughs. The best thing about this for me thought is that although this a sour beer it’s properly sour for itself and not that chemical induced sour that you get, like in child’s lollies (not pun intended)
My verdict on this is that this is awesome and fills me with great hope that my love/hate with sours is misplaced.
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 10 on the arbitrary number scale. There’s no reason that this isn’t drop dead brilliant, and although you can only get it as part of a festival pack I think I’ve already had great value. A lovely lovely beer that brought it all to the table and let you replete, satisfied and smiling.
There’s music of course, and it’s CARNAGE by Nick Cave, Warren Ellis a new album is playing for me on the Spotify player.
The GABS Invitational pack brings you a true “Craft Beer Summer in a Box” and features eight carefully curated craft beers that won’t be found anywhere else including Just A Little Slice Cheesecake Sour from Behemoth, Double Boysenberry & Chocolate Ripple Sour from Duncan’s, Mos Definitely Hazy Mosaic IPA from Funk Estate, Luz Grapefruit Brut IPA from Urbanaut, Aotearoa IPA Series #17 Hazy Riwaka from Sawmill, Zenith Hazy IPA from Deep Creek, Welcome to Tijuana Lime Lager from 8 Wired and Hell Yeah! Helles Lager from Emerson’s.
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
