Special Release

Apricot Saison

 

This beer is sold out in 500ml bottles! You can find some at select bottle shops in New Zealand, but otherwise if you want to get in on the next beer we recommend you sign up for our Beer of the Month Club subscription.

Our second Beer of the Month is a perfect beer for autumn. Apricot Saison is thick and hazy with a golden blush hue. Gentle apricot and subdued hop aroma give way to clove and dry spice Saison yeast character. Layers of malted barley, wheat, rye, spelt and rolled oats create a lush mouthfeel leading to a lingering, dry, fruity finish.

This special edition beer won’t last long and you’d best get in and get a few so you can be a part of our new series of innovative Beer of the Month releases!

Brewer's Notes

Emma couldn't decide which yeast to use for this beer - a French Saison, or Belgian Saison yeast. Each has its benefits - smooth and silky mouthfeel with spicy and peppery notes, or tart and dry in finish with fruity notes. The answer was obvious: use them both together! The result is a sumptuous beer that will showcase many dishes and presents well on its own.
