A 50/50 blend of our Good Lord Tripel, with Gewurztraminer juice, from the Waitaki Valley. Further co-fermented with Champagne yeast. Just prior to bottling, we threw in some noble hops for fun and balance. The spicy nose and taste is entirely from the yeast, malt, hop and grape combination. Is it wine or beer? Perfect for cellar aging.
Food pairing: Proper bread and butter. Asparagus crepes, Witloof gratin, and other strong temperate climate vegetables. Fish, mussels, soft and/or strong cheese, fowl, Christmas pudding, fruit desserts, nougat, jenever.
