Brewed with Pilsner malt, spelt and Tardif de Bourgogne hops
We brewed a base of Heidelberg Pils from Bestmalz and spelt from Tags and Co of county Durham. The beer was then hopped heavily with a variety new to us from a producer we both love, Locher Hopfen of Tettnang.
Tardif de Bourgogne (literally 'late Burgundy') is an old, French noble variety grown, in this case, in Tettnang. It's bursting with rich nobility but is also a hop with distinct personality.
The beer has subtle notes of bay, lavender and apricot. On the palate, it has refreshing dryness, deliciously doughy pilsner malt flavour and a crunchy, lingering bitterness.
