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.
We have produced a rather full-bodied dark beer with lots of roasted dark malt character. You’ll find notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel. This porter offers some bitterness but is balanced by a sweeter malt profile.
