Poland’s Sulimar Brewery has launched a duo of ‘his-and-hers’ beers under its Cornelius brand in time for Valentine’s Day tomorrow.
The special-edition cans consist of a raspberry-coloured can for women, complete with a matching raspberry-scented beer with a ‘subtle sweetness’ and full-bodied raspberry flavour. The raspberry preparation, which gives the beer its unique flavour, was developed by Zentis Polska Sp. z o.o. The Cornelius Malinowy (raspberry) beer has 5% ABV and a wort extract content of 12.9%.
A second green can contains a combination of pale pilsner malt and European hop varieties. The dominant aroma is that of malt and resin, delicate herbs and flowers, and compounds typical of European hops. Cornelius Pils has an ABV and a wort extract content of 11.7%.
Both beers come in 33cl cans with elaborate designs reflecting the atmosphere of St. Valentine’s Day.
Sulimary Brewery president Mariusz Supady said: “We have lots of experience and success with regards to flavoured beer. Cornelius Grejpfrutowy (grapefruit) was a finalist in the Beverage Innovation Awards held at Drinktec in Munich in 2013. We are happy with the development of a Valentine’s Day beer concept comprising a male and a female element and an original design.”
And Ireneusz Lichota, president of Zentis Polska, which developed the raspberry preparation for the Cornelius Malinowy beer, said: “Our motto is ‘the only things better than our fruit are our preparations’. We have already succeeded in the fields of filling contents of pastries and preparations for beverages, and the Valentine’s Day Cornelius Malinowy is evidence of our competence in flavoured beer. Beer preparations prove to be yet another area in which we succeed.”
