Northern Monk - OFS 008: DDH Hopfenweisse - 6%
6% ABV DDH Hopfenweisse 440ml can.
Inspired by a love of a signature Hopfenweisse out of Bavaria and an interest in how many overlaps there are between the style and New England IPAs.
We fermented a wheat-led wort with a classic Bavarian wheat beer strain and coupled this with modern US varieties Sabro, Sultana and Citra. The results marry the classic banana, black pepper and bubblegum esters of weisse yeast with punchy notes of pineapple, satsuma and coconut.
The folks at Northern Monk have launched a brand-new beer series, a series dedicated to the exploratory, small-batch nature of brewing at their original Old Flax Store brewery site where it all began in 2014.
The OFS Special series will push the boundaries of their brewing, allowing them to be completely experimental in approach.
