The Sawmill Crystal Wheat Beer (500ml Bottle)
Each batch is brewed in the age old tradition in a copper kettle and fermented in timber clad fermentation tanks, before being transferred to the stainless steel conditioning tanks to condition naturally. All beers are made from the finest selected ingredients. These include a range of classic malts, wheat and corn from New Zealand, Australia and the UK and traditional hop varieties from Nelson. Ultra filtered rain water and specialty yeasts are used to further enhance the natural flavours of the brews. There are no artificial additives, sugars or preservatives. The beers are unpasteurised and unfiltered. Named ?Crystal? because of its unique colour qualities, this beer is made to the brewer's own special recipe using 60% wheat and 40% Pilsner malt.
Golden to light amber in color, the body is light to medium. The wheat lends a crispness to the brew, often with some acidity. Some hop flavour maybe be present, but bitterness is low. Not as estery as German or Belgian-style wheats.
