ABOUT THE BEER
(1. An avid cyclist [sp.] 2. A delicious beer made with flowers) Elderflowers are often described as having a character reminiscent of ripe pear and floral lychee, or as having an aroma existing somewhere between stone fruit and citrus fruit, with some licorice notes for complexity. Paired with these bright flavours is a gentle lager-like bitterness and an orange marmalade note from Pacifica hops, as well as a tropical fruit peachy-gooseberry note from dry hopping with Galaxy hops. The malt is primarily Canadian 2-Row, with large additions of Maris Otter and Toasted Wheat. Making up the rest is acid malt, which creates a slight sourness, something that enhances the perception of citrus from the flowers and hops, and increases the beers "Refreshing" thirst quenching qualities. (Think Lemonade- or Elderflower Cordial!) Fermented as a Lager, and filtered until sparkling, this beer is clean and crisp with a touch of lager bite, enhanced by the botanical additions and clean lactic tartness.
