Ministry of Beer thoroughly impressed us with their Peach Sour last year. A premium sour in a premium bottle which snuck into our Top 5 Beers of 2020. Whatever your personal feelings towards cans might be, the craft beer scene has spoken with the vessel of choice shifting clearly to the lighter, more convenient option. Ministry of Beer felt they had to act and we now see almost all their core range now available in cans.

This is somewhat of an update to the original Mosaic Berliner Weisse review we did earlier last year. In a can and sporting a new, simpler name.

Hops generally take a back seat when it comes to this style. Generally speaking it’s all about the fruit, whether that be through direct fruit additions (or concentrated puree), and the acidity. The fruit in this case is brought to you by the Mosaic hops. Pouring light straw in colour with a quickly dissipating head, we get a fair dose of those Mosaic hops on the nose. Passionfruit, some light citrus and a touch of pine were most prominent. On the palate a genuine but well rounded acidity comes through, nicely guided on top of a faint tart lemony citrus. This is a relatively light beer at only 3.5% ABV and the flavour threatens to derail on multiple occasions, only to be brought back into line perfectly with a touch of creamy sweetness.

A mostly dry finish at the tail end leaves you pretty keen on another can once this one has disappeared. Highly enjoyable and quite an experience for anyone who has yet to delve into the world of sour beers and a twist for those that have. Super refreshing, light in ABV and something that could sit comfortably in your esky while the weather is warm. Plus, you can stack them easier now!
