Tasting notes

Amber colour. Grapefruit aroma. Intense, luscious hops hit you immediately. The bitterness is combined with complex citrus fruit flavours. This beer has finished dry on account of the saison yeast. It is a close relative of Indian Summer but less extreme.

Brewed with pale and extra pale Maris Otter malt, high colour Munich, oats and malted wheat (but no sucrose this time). Hopped with Dr Rudi (NZ hop), American Centennial, Columbus and Summit hops. Fermented with a Belgian saison yeast (WLP565). OG 1057 PG 1007, strength 6.5% after bottle conditioning. Estimated bitterness 42 IBU. Dry hopped with Centennial and East Kent Goldings.

This beer is produced without the use of any finings, filtering or pasteurisation, so all the flavours of the ingredients are preserved for your enjoyment.
