Now this is an interesting one.....Our collaboration with Cerebral has the first pitch in the UK of a brand new yeast from WHC. This yeast is a strain which has some very cool enzyme activity. It has high beta-glucosidase activity which plays a part in hop biotransformation and the production of increased flavour. It also has an enzyme which liberates bound thiols (sounds rad right?), found in both malt and hops, which further increases the fruity flavour in the final beer (think Mango, Guava and Passionfruit). In this beer, we added chinook hops to the mash and selected varieties for dry hopping which have been proven to contain more of these bound thiols and thus will lead to more flavour in the finished beer. Citra, Idaho 7 and Riwaka have brought an aroma intense with mango, lychee and orange. On the palate marmalade malt notes mingle with sweet papaya, intense cantaloupe and freshly squeezed orange juice before a lingering finish of gooseberry, pinot grios and a pleasingly soft, pithy bitterness.
