Ichigo Highway is a collaborative beer that we created with Hangar 24 Brewing from Redlands, CA. The base style is a sessionable sour red ale that we aged in oak barrels along with a whopping amount of strawberries, most of which were picked from the fields besides Hangar 24’s brewery. Aged for approximately 8 months, this beer has developed a pleasant funk and a delightful acidity that is balanced by the intensely sweet aroma and flavor of the strawberries as well as a unique dryness achieved by using a sake yeast along with our house strain along with souring bacteria. Available in November. 5.5% ABV, Best enjoyed fresh due to the fleeting aroma and flavor of the strawberries

Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of burnt plastic and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, burnt plastic, and straw, leading to a very tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Draft at the source. Cloudy maroon briwn color, off white head. Aroma of sour berries. Taste is similar, with a touch of sweet fruitiness at the start. Nice.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Cloudy light brown beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Smell pretty grim! Sweaty socks! Bleh! Palate is light and dry. Taste pretty much follows the nose but add dusty strawberry. Finishes dry. A stinker. As a Bruery advocate - I feel let down here!

Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - ’’thanks’’ to Ken. Pours murky orange with a quickly-fading cream head. Smells of stinky Danish cheese (which ranks among the stinkiest of cheeses, mind you), rotten strawberries, sour fruits. Light sweet flavor with heavy sourness, some funk, vinegar, acetic burn, dry and leathery fruits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sour finish with more leathery fruits, sweat, moderate acid burn. So so. It looks bad and smells worse, but the flavor saves the beer ever so slightly.

Bottle split at Craft Clerko, big thanks to Kenneth, 26/06/13. Murky orange amber akin to the canal that runs through Kidsgrove, thin white head that makes the call to escape out of the glass via the edge. Nose is pungent fruits, plastic, rotting pond life with a strawberry bobbing atop. Taste comprises strawberry bubblegum, tarte berry fruits, blast of dirty funk, plastic, light throat scraping balsams, grassy notes, dank wood dragged through the pond. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, tarte finish. Not a looker, doesn’t smell too good, tastes ok if somewhat a one trick pony - hmmm, not a revisit for this one, you might want to take a detour to avoid too long a trip on Ichigo Highway!!!

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with fizzy off white head. Nose and taste of strawberry, puckering tartness, caramel malt, earth, wild yeast and wood chips. Medium body. Very tart. Touch of bandaid in finish.
