BEER NAME: Goshawk

BEER STYLE: Gluten Free Pale Ale

BREWERY: Red Sky Brew

REGION: Gordon’s Bay, Western Cape

ABV: 4%

INGREDIENTS: Malted sorghum, maize, hops, yeast and water

BREWER’S NOTES: Brewed in a Pale Ale style, using a combination of both sorghum and maize malts. This beer has strong passion fruit and litchi notes on the nose and palate. A surprising bitterness which is naturally found from the sorghum, comes through. The beer has a low malt profile, however is strong in fruity flavour, light in colour, often with a pinkish hue. A very easy drinking beer, great for hot sunny days!

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Unique hazy pale straw in clolour and a generous head with good retention
  • AROMA: Sweet and fruity with notes of Passion fruit and litchi.
  • FLAVOUR: Subtle notes of passion fruit and litchi, with a bitterness that ends in a slight greenapple aftertaste. Subtle phenolic smokey flavours present in this one.
  • MOUTHFEEL: Full bodied, but light and refreshing at the same time.
  • OVERALL: I really like the thought of a Gluten Free beer, this one is the first of its kind to be locally brewed in South Africa. A healthier option for those looking for a guilt free sundowner.
  • PAIR WITH: Cheese Cake, key lime or lemon merengue pie

BREW REVIEW RATING: 7/10
