New SaltaireXS beer launched

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

This week, we’re very excited to launch SaltaireXS Belgian Red (7.2% ABV) as part of our limited SaltaireXS range of extra special 330ml bottled beers. We launched the range a year ago at Craft Beer Rising, London to meet the demand for a more intense flavour experience from increasingly discerning drinkers.


The SaltaireXS Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) and SaltaireXS Imperial Stout (8.9% ABV) were the first beers in the range. Since then, the SaltaireXS Imperial IPA has been recognised as Europe’s Best Imperial IPA by the 2015 World Beer Awards.


Managing Director, Ewen said, “The response to our SaltaireXS range from beer writers to consumers has been exceptional. And when we launched the range last year with just two classic styles, I promised we would add to it. Our new Belgian Red is very exciting – it has definitely challenged our brewers and produced the intense, pleasurable flavours that we want in our SaltaireXS range.”


The SaltaireXS Belgian Red (7.2% ABV) is a deep ruby red colour presenting aromas of caramel and spicy esters. It is lightly hopped using Saaz and Hersbrucker, but the real stars of the show are the continental malts imparting a rich malty flavour with hints of nut and plum.


The Belgian Red will be showcased for the first time at CAMRA Bradford Beer Festival 25-27 February. The SaltaireXS branded beers are available to order from the Brewery with the new Belgian Red available from 29 February.
