HERMIT THRUSH BREWERY
Gin Barrel Saison
VERMONT GIN BARREL AGED SOUR SAISON
Bright sour golden saison aged in Vermont gin barrels. The coconut notes are coming from the second use American oak, and the wild flower honey added to this gin translates well into this beer.
Can Size: 473ml
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
Vermont water, malted barley, hops, wild Brattleboro mixed culture yeast.
