Red Duck Miss Margaux

Raspberry and Blood Plum Kettle Sour

There’s a spring in the step at Red Duck as they bring back one of their favourites – with a bit of an update. Miss Margaux originally contained raspberry and hibiscus but, for spring 2021, the latter has been replaced with blood plum and, while the two might seem quite removed from one another, you should remember that plums are a member of the rose family. OK, so the hibiscus is actually a member of the mallow family, but given a hibiscus is a pleasant-smelling flower and so is a rose – if you don't think about it too much – they are in the same ballpark [Now that was a stretch, Ziebell! – Editor].

As for Miss Margaux and its design for spring and summer, the lightly tart kettle sour certainly ticks all the right boxes. At first you’re hit by a substantial raspberry note which furthers the beer's sourness and, while the blood plum is a little less prominent, it adds a more juicy depth as well as enhancing the beer's richness.
