Four FlowerGruit Ale • 5.6 % • Gruit
Four Flower is a gruit ale featuring a bouquet of aromatics and flavour – the recipe includes red clover, elderflower, borage, and honeysuckle, all of which are artfully illustrated on the label. Eighty kilograms of organic flowers are used to create each batch of Four Flower.
History & Style
The Gruit Series takes inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition. In gruit ales, herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character, throwing open the door to experimentation. Borage, also known as starflower, has a pedigree as a beer ingredient that goes back to medieval times.
Four Flower Gruit pours light orange with a white foam and slight haze. The aroma is both floral and fruity with citrus notes. The flavour imparts malt sweetness and stone fruit notes. The finish is clean and crisp.
