As an incredibly parochial New Zealander living in Australia, it gave my heart a little flutter to write New Zealand in that little Country of Origin box. I am so glad that things are starting to happen in the Kiwi non-alc scene. Now all we need is more wine!
This non-alcoholic IPA is one of two non-alc beers currently being made by Bach Brewing (to those uninitiated, a Bach is a NZ holiday house!). They also have a hazy which is on my to-try list!
This IPA pours really nicely and is quite a deep amber in the glass. It smells a little fruity and tropical but is not over the top. To drink, its just a really bloody nice non-alcoholic IPA! I’d say balanced, a little hoppy, a little bitter, a little fruity in all the right places. A really tasty and really sessionable non-alc beer.
It wins bonus points for being REALLY low cal and low sugar. Can’t wait to try the hazy now!
