5.5% Farmhouse Riesling Lagerbier
Lucky Diamond • 750 ml
5.5% Farmhouse Riesling Lagerbier!
The latest in our series of farmhouse/lager hybrids. This was brewed with a simple base of German pilsner malt and flaked corn. We added Saaz hops to the boil and fermented/lagered with our house German lager strain. After completing fermentation, we then added Riesling grape juice and pitched a blend of Saison yeast and Brettanomyces to undergo a secondary fermentation. Finally, this beer receives a big dry-hop with Tettnanger and then bottle conditioned.
The body is light and fluffy, yet very dry. Floral hops and funk on the nose, the flavour is juicy white grapes and bit of spicy hop character. Moderate bitterness, but the Riesling addition gives the perception of a touch of sweetness and a hint of acidity. Endless drinkability.
