Video: Coming Soon: Summit Southern Cape Sparkling Ale

Sounds like we can look for this intriguing and quite mouth-watering jewel around here soon from our good friends at Summit Brewing Co. Seems perfect for the Summer and I'm a fan of these a bit "out of the box" styles I guess.

"Go around the world in a pint." 

Presenting Southern Cape Sparkling Ale, the latest in the limited-release Summit Union Series. Inspired by sparkling ales popular in the Southern hemisphere. Named after the Southern Cape hop farms in South Africa. With ingredients from Australia, New Zealand, Chile and South Africa for a refreshingly balanced ale that’s perfect for summer.

Flavor Notes: Hints of pineapple and mango hop aroma. Biscuity malts lend a soft, toasted note and rounded finish. Lively carbonation pairs well with a warm summer afternoon.
