Tuatara Golden Eye (500ml Bottle)
The beer you are holding was made in celebration. Whether you’re a drinker, supplier, employee or distributor, big thanks for helping our farm shed operation grow into the fantastic business it has become. Blood, sweat and tears doesn’t begin to cover it! Winning the NZ Brewers Guild Champion Brewery award twice in our 16 years is testament to your incredible efforts. Cheers!
Golden Eye is an opportunity to share the celebration and thank the many that enable us to continue making award winning brews – so thank you!
With a bigger body than its little bro, Mot Eureka, Golden Eye is dangerously drinkable, with an enhanced malt sweetness, intense notes of citrus and grapefruit and refreshingly crisp, dry finish.
Enjoy unshaken, not stirred.
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.
