GABS is back once again and with it comes the opportunity to kick out the jams new and interesting ways, with a GABSfest brew that’ll get your mouth watering – the Mon Cheri Cherry Sour IPA.

A tangy, lipsmacking beer if ever there was one, it’s a polyamorous explosion of grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruits, all enlivened with lashings of cherry and a light bitterness that made our French brewer Antoine swoon.

The Mon Cheri is the end result of 200kg of fresh cherry purée, buckets of Talus hops with a hint of florals, and the very cool, very nouveau Philly sour yeast strain – brought together with the typical Akasha eye for quality, balance and freshness. And it’s an absolute banger.

Tart, sour-sweet, and totally lit. What’s not to love? As to the best way to enjoy this tasty delight, why at GABS of course – so allez allez! to the Melbs and Brisbane fests and wrap your lips around this very special beer while you can!
