In early September the hops we grow on our little field, in the village of Chelsworth, become ready for picking. The hop oils and aromas are all around you when handpicking in the September sunshine, so we decided to brew a beer to let these fresh green hops shine as well. Only our organically grown Suffolk hops and barley malt was used in the brew. The beer was primary fermented with a Saison yeast strain and then a secondary fermentation, in oak barrels, with our own locally collected wild yeast. The resulting beer is dry with mouth-coating of hop oils and pepper, orchard fruit flavours are at the fore with more funky spice from the yeast on the finish.
