If you’re a lover of craft beer, you may to want to check this out.

The Zeven Lemon Strawberry Blonde brings you the ‘crisp taste of beer, and the fruit appeal of cider’, all rolled up into one bottle. You’ll get the traditional malted barley, wheat, and hops flavour, with an extra dash of natural strawberry juice, to create a deliciously chilled beverage with a subtle, fruity flavour.

This is the brainchild of Zeven Lemon Beerworks founder Leimin Duong, an ex-corporate worker who left her job to chase a passion for beer. According to a profile by Spirited Singapore, Duong oversees every aspect of the brewing process: from the mixing, to bottling, through to packaging. Zeven Lemon is the second beer company in Australia that is 100 per cent female-owned-and-run.

The result is this unique balance between the bitterness of beer, and the tart sweetness of strawberries, using a recipe specially developed by this Sydney-based brewery. It was first introduced into the market in 2013, but is now officially launching nationwide.

As a hybrid of both cider and beer, Strawberry Blonde is designed to be easy to drink, especially for those who do not like the bitter, hoppiness of regular beer. It is sold in a 330mL bottle, with an alcohol percentage of 4.0%.

The official product website describes it as:

“Light, crisp and refreshing flavoured beer brewed from malted barley, wheat and hops with subtle fruit flavour from a touch of real strawberry juice. It is mildly tart to start and low in bitterness with a bit of fruity sweetness to finish. Does not contain artificial flavours or preservatives.”

It certainly sounds promising, especially to those of us who aren't overly fond of the bitterness of traditional beers.

Zeven Lemon had a stall at Taste of Sydney on 12 March, as well as the Food Wine Expo on the Gold Coast in late January. Last year, they hosted a pop-up bar at Taste of Melbourne in November, and the Good Food & Wine Show in both Brisbane and Sydney.

You can purchase Zeven Lemon Strawberry Blonde online from Dan Murphy’s or Beer Bud, or from any of these retailers here.
