This is a very nice beer from Wiper & True, interesting concept and it works. Very refreshing beer. Highly carbonation and refreshing lager hybrid

with a very slight fruity Brett note at the end.

Tribute clone..
Well deserved as we've been at the allotment all day..planted a load of tomatoes in the poly tunnel and cabbages and broad beans outside. Back home I've planted corn,cabbages,swede,broccoli, sprouts,pumpkins and peas.

Bramling Cross & Saaz SAISON

Doing a carbonation check on this before moving to the garage, was a bit of an experiment and I have mixed views on it. First up the Bramling Cross is definitely dominating this beer as it has a strong black current like flavour, which somewhat overwhelms the characteristics I would expect from the Yeast. I will happily drink this but I still prefer my Saaz & Aurora SAISON, I think it needs a tad more bitterness possibly either increase the boil time on the first addition or use something like Magnum as a first addition.

Both of those sound very nice!

Yep I really am starting to love SAISON it’s such a simple beer but gives such great results.
Yeah..once you try it sort of grows on you...and it's best to keep your recipes secret...or they'll all be doing it!

That looks lovely 😊
You will need a few after that result today πŸ˜‰
Yeah, I was hopeful we would get a result but not surprised we didn't as we have lost more than won against Merseyside teams over the years πŸ™„

Was going to have a drink tonight as I have been struggling with a cold, but after a session in the pain cave I fancied some cheese and biscuits for supper. You need a drink with those and wanted something dark.

I then remembered that I have a Baltic porter from @pilgrimhudd. I have never had this style but fancy brewing one in winter. I do have a verdant version in the fridge.

This poured with a nice thick white head that dispersed after a while. This is different to a normal porter, seems lighter and definetly more lager like that the traditional porter. But like a bipa without the hops. I really like it and very interesting beer. This seems more carbed than I thought but that could be how it is supposed to be.

This is a cracking beer @pilgrimhudd thanks for sharing. I wouldn't mind seeing the recipe and how it was brewed.
