The closest thing i've found to Christmas in a can, this is like mulled wine, mince pies and joy all contained in a 440ml can.
Part of Brew York's Christmas specials that also included the Fairytale of Brew York 2020we recently reviewed, yet completely different in style and flavour.
Dreams of Brew York 2020: Taste Test
There's a sickly-sweet aroma that's very fruity that bursts forth from the can when it's popped and it pours a beautiful deep purple colour that's festive in of itself.
Tartness is the main flavour initially, with the cranberries and blueberries adding some tang to the flavour, which is countered splendidly by a vanilla creaminess that creates two very different flavours in one can.
The aftertaste sees the tartness of the fruit fade a little and the milky, creamy vanilla come to the party in a big way. It tastes just like pastry crust, or the flavour you have in your mouth after you've finished a mince pie.
Dreams of Brew York 2020: Can Notes
Dreams of Brew York 2020 features the same can design as it's sibling Fairytale of Brew York 2020, but this one adds in more darker colours and imagery, including bright green holly leaves with red berries and some darker blue colours.
The beer name and logo is in a deep purple stripe down the front, and to really emphasise the fruitiness there's also actual blueberries.
Buy Dreams of Brew York 2020 Pastry Sour
You can't. Just like Fairytale of Brew York 2020, it's a limited edition run from Brew York that you can't buy any longer.
You can try and hunt them down in bottleshops around the country, but if you find one it will be like gold dust. If you have one in your fridge, don't hesitate to try it.
