We produce lighter version of the style, while still moderately hopped. We’ve decided to concentrate on the aromatics of the hops by using five different varieties to give a more complex & less bitter version of the favourite beer style. Lots of tropical and citrus notes on the nose and palate
Our Nelson Saison is truly a unique style. We used our house French Saison recipe & switched out the hops for New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops. This variety is known for it’s Sauvignon Blanc wine like aromatics. The dryness & lemon qualities from the French Saison marry well with the hop characteristics, bringing out lots of gooseberry, passion fruit, grapefruit & lemon, making for an interesting take on a classic style.
Our German Wheat Beer is fermented with a traditional Hefeweizen yeast. It’s full of bright banana notes, a bit of citrus, plus a bit of clove in the background. We modified the traditional recipe a bit using malts you wouldn’t normally see in this style to produce a beer with a bit more weight and malt character.
Our Altbier is a version of Altbier called a Sticke Alt. This classic style differs from a traditional Altbier by being darker, fuller bodied & intense in flavor with higher IBU’s to balance out the caramel & molasses flavours.
