Pollys Brew Co - The Daphne Touch - 6.5% ABV - 440ml Cans
We've been in lockdown for exactly a month now, and as a result, we're getting a little bored, and shall we say, experimental. The Daphne Touch was born from an idea birthed when we wanted to brew the fruitiest, thickest, pulpiest beer we possibly could. Step forward Kveik yeast. The Scandinavian super-yeast is a brewer's dream - quick to ferment, active at practically any temperature, and oh so many incredible flavours. Rolling with a whole host of pineapple, yuzu, and pair notes from the off, we dry hopped this beer with a megastar hop bill of Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic and Azacca for a full on fruit salad of tropical notes. Finished off with a generous lashing of lactose to thicken it up just a little more.
