10% Barley Wine. A beer the mimics a wine?? This beer vibes of a Riesling, the phenolic notes from the addition of the Manuka smoked malt. The 10% warming alcohol balances the resiny bitterness from the Nelsom Sauvin hops representing the vibrant acidity in the wine. Aromas of spicy peach and barbecued Grapefruit with a touch of booze. Flavour is warmish and rich; wood fired apricot crumble with an intense grassy fresh bitterness that will soften with time in the long alcohol finish.
MALT: Gladfield Pale Ale, Manuka Smoked, Light Crystal
