Little Bang love to embark on a series with their beers and have a couple on rotation that focus on two of the styles du jour: the SNEIPAs (sour NEIPA) and the Schwangs. Both favour fruity, sour compositions but are very different stylistically.
The first Schwang to make it into a can is the original tangerine Schwang (with stablemates Schwangcherry and Schwangberry no doubt to follow), a 3 percent ABV Berliner Weisse featuring a hearty serving of tangerines.
The citrus fruit and zingy acidity combine to create a sherbet like aroma in a beer that's light on the palate and goes down easily. The fruit takes charge on the palate, where fresh, juicy, pithy flavours are to the fore before the sour side aids refreshment with a dry, Schwangy finish.
