Voodoo ElderFizz, Elderflower Sour, 24-48 x 330ml Cans
Voodoo ElderFizz, Elderflower Sour 5% ABV
As Monty Python used to say… and now for something completely different. This perky potation is an elderflower-flavoured sour beer, and part of Frome’s Voodoo series. Flavoured with elderflowers and fermented with a wild yeast gathered in a graveyard in Philadelphia (yes you read that correct!), it’s a hazy, golden, juicy tipple whose nose pulsates with aromatics of elderflower, grapefruit and pineapple. Each sip reveals layers of gentle tartness, a soft sourness and light acidity accompanied by plenty of mouth-watering pineapple and grapefruit notes before its dry finish. Crisp, refreshing and quenching, this is a spirited beer that will bring back to life even the most jaded of palates.
Food pairing: Molluscs are a must as a match for the juiciness and tartness of Elder Fizz, so try grilled scallops or half-a-dozen oysters. Remaining in the sea, you might want to think about salt cod fritters, with the soft salinity of the snack achieving a kind of divine collaboration with the subtle and soft tartness of the beer.
*please note - on the beer label it says 'contains lactose'. This was an error, it doesn't contain any lactose and is 100% vegan.
