Let us introduce you Tropical Illusion, which is a mango infused Berliner
Weisse. This style is a traditional specialty of Berlin region.
Napoleon’s troops called it “the Champagne of the North” due to its unique
character. In Germany, it is classified as a Schankbier denoting a small beer
of starting gravity in the range 7-8°P. Often served with the addition of a
shot of sugar syrups, flavored with raspberry or woodruff. Has been described
by some as the most purely refreshing beer in the world (BJCP). I didn’t want
this beer to be mixed with any syrup, I added fruit myself instead.
Black IPAOur Key Account Manager, Csaba Papp is an enthusiastic homebrewer since 2013, practices continuously with Swaen malts, and tries to develop better and better recipes. He always participates in this contest – “This is a nice event to share brews, ideas and get some objective feedback of my beer, which I can learn from”. This year was especially successful for him, as he collected 2 medals:
29C: Specialty Fruit Beer: Golden
21B: Specialty IPA | Black IPA: Bronze
Christmas BeerAccording to BJCP this style refers to a stronger, darker, spiced beer that often has a rich body and warming finish, suggesting a good accompaniment for the cold winter season. Many breweries produce unique seasonal offerings that may be more characterful than their normal beers. Spiced versions are an American or Belgian tradition, since English or German breweries traditionally do not use spices in their beer.
Last time we brought you an extraordinary new wave beer (perhaps you can put its FB link
here). Let’s see a traditional one this time.
This recipe focuses on the traditional Hefeweizen characteristics: creamy permanent foam and typical banana + clove aromas, while the great mix of caramel and roasted malts results in a nice amber color and rich malty, a bit spicy flavor.
Summer is here. Most of us are keen on easy-to-drink beer in this period of the year. But we have to think of winter months, when we desire warming, stronger drinks. As these beer styles require longer aging, we should brew them months before. So why don’t we check an Imperial Stout recipe this time.amber color and rich malty, a bit spicy flavor.
New England IPA
New England IPA is an unfiltered, juicy IPA, with silky mouthfeel. The significant hopping at the end of the boil, whirlpool and dry hop additions contribute to intensive fruity and floral flavors.
Its color is mostly golden, light orange, while the appearance is quite hazy, due to the dry hopping, the use of high-protein grains (wheat, flaked grains) and low attenuating yeast strains.
