Beer Description

This is the third in our series that explores pairing seasonal ingredients with different strains of yeast. This round pairs American grown yuzu with brettanomyces claussenii. We used real yuzu rather than prepackaged juice or concentrate. We hand zested and juiced each yuzu then added both to the fermenting beer. Real yuzu fruit has a surprisingly small amount of juice and as a result of using whole fruit this beer showcases the delicate floral and piney aeromatic of the yuzu zest over the often punishing acidity of its juice. Brettanomyces Claussenii is known more for its tropical pineapple and only slight funk compared to other strains of brett and creates a beautiful compliment to the bright citrus aromas of the yuzu.
