Saaz is a blend of younger and older wild ales, that fermented and aged for 8 months up to 2,5 year. The beer was dryhopped for over 6 months in an oak foeder with Czech Saaz hops.
In the nose you will come across a grassy, herbal smell which is characteristic of Saaz. Flowers like chamomile and roses, fresh peaches, some funk and hay are also found in the aroma. In taste you will experience a slightly bitterness from the hops, a balanced sourness with a fairly dry finish which can remind you of a natural cider.
This beer is suitable for longer ageing. The bitterness and sourness of the beer are expected to merge. In addition, it’s always interesting — often fascinating and amazing — to see a beer develop over time in the bottle. Especially with a dryhopped wild ale. When drinking fresh, we recommend to let the beer open up in the glass.
