Brewed in collaboration with the ever wonderful Elusive Brewing this Bitter Blonde is really rather good.
There’s an almost farmyard-y apricot fruitiness to the aroma, it’s a smell that could lead you to believe you’re about to taste a Saison.
But the malting here is sweet and sticky with toffee and bread crusts, honey and biscuits, while the yeast is warm and round and earthy, but never tart.
The hopping brings lots of hedgerow herbal greenery, hazel leaves and nettles, a splash of lemon and the snap of super dry rosehips, and lead you to the superbly dry bitter finish.
