Brewery: Venom Brewing Collaboration with Coburg Brewing Co.
Style: Sour - Fruited
Portello (beer) lacks the intensity of Portello (soft drink)'s deep purple colour and cordial like sickliness – the latter does comes with 66g of sugar per serve, after all – and instead has the deep pink hue of a hazy framboise. Yet, for all that there’s a whiff of lacto-derived sourness on the nose of P(b) there’s plenty – and I mean plenty – of lolly like fruity sweetness there too. When people think of dessert beers, it’s typically a milkshake IPA or some form of adjunct-laden dark beer but this is very much for the sweet-toothed too.
