Limited Edition 2014
On 12th October 1706, a travelling fishmonger is said to have dropped a crab on the outskirts of the Dorset village of Shapwick. The locals, having never seen a crab before, armed themselves with pitchforks and sticks to drive away this ’devil monster’. Today, ’Crab Farm’ still commemorates the spot where the Shapwick Monster was first sighted.
Brewed with Target and Hallertau Select hops, this lambic-style beer has been infused with orange peel, cloves and juniper berries for a warming aromatic effect. Best enjoyed at room temperature in champagne flutes.

Lovely beer, you do have to drink Shapwick Monster out of a champagne flute, to get the best out of it. Very strong beer, 7.5 abv and it goes down a little too easy.
Reminds me of the Belgian beer Hopus, but without the fizz.

Pours a hazy copper with a white head. Sweet floral / herby aroma. Quite a light taste.

500ml bottle. pours amber with medium beige head. this is nowhere near as carbonated as any lambic i’ve had in the past. aroma is weird. smells like a sour, "off" pint of bitter. taste is quite similar. drinkable but tastes like a fruit infused bitter and not a lambic. not offensive but not representative of the style at all.
