Low-abv beer specialist Nirvana Brewery has launched a limited-edition in collaboration with soda producers Square Root

The new brew is a fruit sour made with tayberries sourced from Square Root's fruit supplier Maynard's Farm in Sussex.

Nirvana decided to use the unusual tayberry 'with a view to put a new taste out to the market, whilst harnessing a familiar beer style'.

The brand says that the beer shows 'pleasant notes of sweet raspberry and blackberry, with a tart and refreshing finish'.

'Summer has turned out to be very different for everyone this year, but now that the industry is beginning to reopen again, we’re seeing demand for tasty [low-alcohol] options rise as consumers are looking to enjoy the rest of their summer without the hangover,' said Nirvana co-founder, Becky Kean. 'At 0.5% abv, the Tayberry Sour gives drinkers a delicious, refreshing beer with the added element of feeling included with friends who may be drinking alcohol... We want to show that [low-alcohol] options can be just as fun, flavoursome and varied as their alcoholic counterparts!'
