Exale Brewing Bacchus Pils
Country: UK | Style: Lager | Size: 440ml | %ABV: 5.6
Wine/ beer hybrids are becoming a bit of a trend which we're most definitely down with. An interesting concept that can go many different ways. This Pilsner has a light floral sweetness from pre-ferment unpasteurised grape juice.
This is a collaboration between ourselves and the amazing urban winery, renegade wine. Every harvest we look for innovative wine producers to help inspire us to create wine-beer hybrids. This is a pilsner fermented with 10% British bacchus pre-ferment unpasteurised juice, we then gave it skin contact for colour and light tannins and a chance for some small secondary fermentation from the skins’ wild yeast. The result is a clean crisp pilsner with grassy, citrus and elderflower notes from the bacchus grapes.
