TORONTO, ON – Bandit Brewery has announced the release of the latest version of a fruit-flavoured ale that has gone through several variations since its first edition last summer.
Mr. Pink (5% abv) was originally a hibiscus and ginger ale, and subsequent versions have included lychee and prickly pear. For its newest iteration, its been flavoured with strawberry and hibiscus, and is described as follows:
For this new version we decided to go for a full-berry flavour, so a few changes were made to the yeast and hop components. We used Vermont yeast for the mash, as it helps to provide the beer with more fruity esters and a slight hint of citrus, which really comes across in this Summer sipper. This time around we went with Belma hops, as it helps to accentuate the sweet strawberry aromas.
The new version of Mr. Pink is available now in the Bandit taproom and bottle shop while supplies last.
