Byron Bay’s Stone and Wood Brewery wowed me last week with their Jasper Ale, so I was looking forward to trying their Limited Release Garden Ale. After a hard days work; fixing 2 broken steps; filling the green bin with waste from the garden and cooking a roast chicken dinner, I was ready for my evening constitutional ale. I was not to be disappointed.
Toffee brown in colour, it’s fruity aroma reminded me of ‘Love Hearts’, you know, the 70’s sweets with cheesy messages on? There’s a refreshing fizz and a beautiful zingy taste of berries and blackcurrants balanced with nice bitter finish. My first reaction was again, ‘wow!’ As was my second reaction. A sure-fire winner.
If this beer was Love Heart, it’d have ‘Drink Me’ written on it. Rush out and buy one now …… it’s limited release.
