Ube Ice Cream Sour

We’ve been hard at work with Northern Bloc’s technical chefs making a beer that replicates Northern Bloc’s Ube Ice Cream, it’s soft, cold, incredibly smooth, full bodied, colourful and vegan!

We started out with a conversation with Northern Bloc, they Ube straight to the table. What’s Ube? It’s a purple yam aka Dioscorea Alata, but that doesn’t quite roll off the tongue as nicely… What does it taste like? Vanilla! A more nutty kind of vanilla though.

Pilsner malt and flaked oats make up the grist, we had a lot of room in the mash tun for a lot of oats and we squeezed out as much of that delicious pale smoothness as possible! Ube was added to the whirlpool and post ferm letting loose its incredible colour and bountiful sweet vanilla custard flavours and aromas! We fermented with Philly Sour yeast for a for a gentle touch of zesty lemon tartness on the finish.

Is it ice cream or is it beer? We don't know where to place it, other than in a glass on a hot summer's day.
