Sometimes you have to take a step out of your comfort zone! For all of the innovative brewing currently going on around the world the bulk of the beers that I enjoy fall into a few main categories, namely Pale Ales, IPAs and DIPAs and darker beers like Stouts and Porters.

Weird Beard and Wild Weather are two UK brewers that have began pushing beer boundaries so it came as no surprise that when they announced their collaboration it would produce something not seen before.

Step forward Such a Bohr, a bonkers blend of a Kaffir Lime Saison and a Coconut Stout!

It has a lively pour, producing a light brown head atop a jet black liquid.

The nose is a lovely mix of lime and toasted coconut; I've never smelt a beer like it.

Despite the lively pour it doesn't feel overly carbonated in the mouth, instead it has a nice smoothness despite the relatively light body.

The flavour is amazing; up front the fresh lime is the main event, then comes sweet coconut, followed by a flash of bitterness before the lime bursts back in to the finish with a citrus sharpness. There's very little alcohol present on the taste and the whole thing is very easy drinking.

Blending the stout with a saison has produced a beer that feels like a porter but tastes incredibly fresh and refreshing; unlike a lot of dark beers this would be amazing on a summers day after a few hours chilling in the fridge.

Collaborations don't always hit the spot but in Such a Bohr, Weird Beard and Wild Weather have succeeding in producing a beer that is not only innovative but is also very tasty.
