A new sour beer for those with a sweet tooth...

This new craft sour beer promises to transport you back in time, to enjoy the unique flavour of one of your favourite childhood treats...

Edinburgh's sour beer microbrewery, Vault City, have unveiled their latest in a long list of experimental creations -- a beer that tastes just like the beloved Wagon Wheel biscuit of bygone days.

Vault Wagon pays homage to the classic treat by combining the iconic taste of strawberry jam, dark chocolate and marshmallow with a delicious sour beer base.

Being bottled at 9.5%, however, this vegan friendly treat is one for the grown-ups only.

Vault City’s co-founder Steven Smith-Hay, said: “Wagon Wheels were a childhood favourite of mine, so they immediately came to mind when planning our new release.

“We like to challenge what people would typically expect from a beer and so combining the taste of juicy strawberries, dark chocolate, sweet biscuit and fluffy marshmallow with our sour base beer was a great way to do that!”

Every three weeks the Portobello based brewery drops new flavours, with Vault Wagon part of May’s Sour Sunday release. Other flavours this month include White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, Peach and Mango, and a Papa Doble cocktail inspired beer.

Vault Wagon is the latest in a long-line of innovative flavoured beers produced by the company, with previous varieties including Fruits of the Forest triple stacked breakfast waffle, Pineapple Upside Down Cake and Raspberry Coconut Ripple.

Earlier this year the company launched its first-ever core range across 200 independent bars, pubs and taprooms across the UK. It is now available in more than 600 Tesco stores nationwide, and recently became the supermarket giant’s best selling craft beer...
