For our six pack of newly discovered lifeforms, we ventured into the unknown with a few of our most inspiring international brewer friends and found all kinds of creepy-crawlies and curious organisms. From a golden ale to a sour pilsner, together we’re pushing the frontiers of flavor beyond our earthly senses. Try them all! Here are the others: No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 5, No. 6.
This is the collaboration with French brewery La Brasserie du Mont Salève. After having brewed a Berliner Weisse at Mont Salève not too long ago using Genepi, an alpine herb, we decided to brew a Berliner Weisse with woodruff this time in Amsterdam. Woodruff, or sweetscented bedstraw, is a herb that sometimes is used in sweet, green sirop that can be poured into a Berliner Weisse to make the beer less sour. We however, aimed to emphasise the herby and sour tones. After making our soured Berliner Weisse base, we added minimal hops and woodruff in the hop back and the fermenter, resulting in this herbal, spicy beer.
