Fresh - October | '21
New month, new FRESH.
Like the name says, these monthly brews are all about keeping it fresh - fresh beer and fresh new flavours and ingredients. For FRESH OCT, in addition to super low colour light pilsner malt and caramalt, we’re trying out red wheat flakes for the first time. These hot rolled red wheat grains boast a higher protein content and nuttier flavour than white wheat varieties. We reckon they’re a winner - don’t expect a red colour, but do prepare yourself for a hyper light straw coloured brew with dense creamy haze you can lose yourself in.
You might have noticed that we’ve been playing with the hot side addition of hops with the last couple of FRESH editions, with the aim of adding more depth to the hop flavour and gently nudging these brews from malt sweetness towards balanced full mouthfeel. In OCT we’ve layered Southern Cross and Citra on the hot side, with a double dry hop of Vic Secret, Freestyle Nelson Sauvin and Cryo Citra in the ferment.
The result is a huge aromatic burst of tropical fruit, with a flavour that’s all ripe passionfruit and pineapple with hints of fresh herb and pine, finishing with a lush lingering juicy palate. All in all a great FRESH start to the month. Enjoy.
