"A collaboration of three brewers, three nationalities and six ideas brought together to learn, experiment and enjoy. Made by Kelly Ryan of Fork & Brewer in NZ, Brett Ellis (ex-pat Yankee) from the Wild Beer Co, and Mark Tranter from Burning Sky Brewery. This beer explores new ideas, techniques, ingredients, combinations and processes.
Using all three brewers combined knowledge and experiences to create an incredibly unusual and complex beer, this utilizes every opportunity to take advantage of amazing ingredients and try alternative techniques.
Somerset County-grown Sharpham Park Spelt has been used for a full body. Pink peppercorns give a gentle sweet spiciness. Saison and Brettanomyces yeast strains lead to a dry spicy character that will continue to evolve. Wood-aging in French red wine barrels for 4 months adds depth and oak. Passion-fruit brings a tart tropical fruit character. The 4-month aging process has been finished off with amazingly tangy Hibiscus flowers. Full body, gentle-sweet spiciness, a dry depth with oak undertones, and tropical fruit character, all finished off with tangy Hibiscus flowers – this is one shnoodlepippin beer!"
