TWIST Rhubarb Sour
The first of many sours, Twist is an exercise in warping your senses.
The idea of Twist comes from a medley of different influences. Taking the physical puckering experience of drinking a sour, combining that with abstract images of human bodies manipulated and melded together, resident artist and moderately-powerful warlock Dan Junsei has created a Matisse-esq design; the pink and the yellow are evocative of the combination of the malts and the rhubarb.
Twist is a kettle sour, meaning it is briefly fermented for 24 hours with Lactobacillus Brevis to create a clean lactic acid tartness, before being sterilised and then fermented with Norweigan-wonder-yeast Kveik Voss. At 4.2%, Twist has a light body that compliments its delicate sourness. This is combined with a healthy addition of British rhubarb for a clean and fruity finish, leaving you wanting another sip. Don’t be deceived by the name sour, Twist is a highly drinkable beer for all times and seasons. We also added some organic hibiscus for a brighter pink colour.
Twist is unfiltered with a natural haze (meaning it is suitable for vegans) and best enjoyed when stored cold and drunk as fresh as possible.
