Boutinot’s Master Blender, Samantha Bailey worked with brewer James Van de Watt, experimenting to match the hops for this champion blend. Following her format for making iconic wine blends, Samantha selected from a tasting of over 30 hops, a blend which delivers a refreshing pilsner style beer which she likened to one of our South African Chenin Blancs. Hops were all dry hopped, adding them once fermentation was complete and left to infuse for 7 days for added flavour.
Light on its feet with knockout tropical fruit flavours courtesy of a champion blend of hops (Hallertau Blanc for floral, lemongrass and elderflower. Amarillo for grapefruit and passionfruit. Simcoe for guavas), it floats like a butterfly and stings like a donkey.
