A Celebration Beer, with apple juice, wild yeasts, NZ hops and champagne fermentation
Named after the ancient Sumerian goddess of beer, this is an equally divine Belgian-style Saison with a copious amount of New Zealand hops, freshly harvested Somerset apple juice and wild yeast. However, just to take things that bit further — once bottled, it undergoes a secondary champagne yeast fermentation.
Serve as an aperitif or alongside Westcombe’s Unpasteurised Aged Cheddar, whose deep creamy flavour and citrus aftertaste is the perfect accompaniment.
On the nose there’s a bouquet of playfully aromatic notes. Take a sip and enjoy a further cascade of striking and sensuous flavours alongside the carefree champagne-like spritziness. The long, dry finish is both refreshing and complex.
