Tuatara GnT Citrus Summer Sour (500ml Bottle)
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. And when life gives you summer, a big beach and statutory holidays, you make GnT – a citrus sour beer inspired by gin and tonic, minus the gin palace and designer boat shoes. It’s just the thing for those lazy hazy days and only for a limited time... much like our Kiwi summer.
Sour wheat beers were common in many parts of medieval and early Industrial Europe. Two styles – lambic and Berliner weisse – survived, but many others did not. Gose and Lichtenhainer are historic styles of sour wheat beer. Grodzisk is sometimes tart, sometimes not. Gose is seasoned with salt, Grodziskie and Lichtenhainer contain smoked malt. Historical sources are mixed about Lichtenhainer containing wheat, so modern interpretations may vary. Grätzer is an alternative name for Grodziskie. All three will be relatively low alcohol, with a strong wheat character, but will be distinct from classic examples of Berliner Weisse or lambic. As all we have are historical recreations, substantial differences may exist between interpretations.
