"6% alc/Vol. 3-4 years old at release. Bottle Conditioned. Nano batch, 200 litres. Vegan. 100% Organic Beer. Label art: Michael O’Brien, Lee-Ann Scotti and Robin Crawford. Seasonal at present.
A blend of our O’ambic (Oamaru Lambic-style), a spontaneously fermented wheat beer, using old hops. A long three hour boil after a decoction mash, the day before. Cooled overnight in winter months in a coolship - an open tray in our barrel room with the doors open.
We are proud of this, our first Gueuze style beer, is 25% 3 year old, 25% 2 year old and 50% one year old O’ambic, our departure from the traditional proportions or 10/30/ 60%. A labour of love!
Refermented and live in the bottle.
Food pairing: Strong goats cheese with radish and sour dough rye bread. This style of beer is sometimes called Bruxelles Champagne , so bring out when there’s a bubbly celebratory occasion."
