Clean out your palates and have another.
Belgian saison yeast is the hero here, producing bucket loads of esters, giving bubblegum, peach and pear character. We combined this traditional farmhouse style with modern citrusy hops for extra fruitiness. What results is a light, refreshing and tart spring saison. Sacre Bleu.
Using all German malts, Pilsner, Munich, Vienna & Carapils the malt complexity and sweetness is there to balance the Hallertau, Tettnang and Saaz additions in the whirlpool & dry hop. It’s a modern interpretation of a classic style, being minerally & hoppy, it’s refreshing & perfect for 400% humidity. Sunburnt, dusty, parched? No need to anticipate that afternoon relief to roll in.
This traditional German wheat beer is a banana fest with hints of clove and finishing with a citric tartness. Fermented at the pulse racing temperature of 27 degrees, we aimed to overload ester production and that’s just what we got. Banana, bubblegum and a trace of peach. Prost.
We built a big toasty malt profile over a crisp lager base to give this beer complexity without bravado. Big flavours up front give way to calm smoothness and a clean finish, just so you can have another, no matter what the weather’s up to outside.
Yeast from northern England was used for its characteristic peach & pear ester profile. A spicy malt backbone of rye, caramel rye & biscuit sets the scene. Subtle hints of marmalade & stone fruit from East Kent Goldings hops adds that little bit of extra ‘English’, that no one asked for. What results is a smooth Bitter, one to really savour.
Looks can be deceiving. Black with toasty flavours and hints of coffee and chocolate, give way to a clean, crisp and dry finish. Magnum and Hallertau hops provide spice and mint, balanced by pilsner, crystal and biscuit malts. An old European style lager with modern interpretation, this one is a genuine stayer.
Keep the faith as you delve between the headstones of yesteryear. Heritage by day, confusion by night, this Dubbel lives in both worlds. The ubiquitous Belgian candi sugar character is balanced by hop bitterness. This is our winter offering of yeast character inspired beers.
