Our Harvest Ale is unique in our range of beers. We brew with fresh hops, harvested immediately prior to brewing. Moo Brew is located only 36kms away from Australia’s largest hop fields at Bushy Park.
This year the Harvest Ale is a robust brown ale.
Willamette and Summer hops, were chosen for this release. In using fresh, wet hop, the aroma is slightly resinous, with tangerine and tropical fruit elements. Due to the seasonal variations, the hop flavour and bitterness is always different.
Given the unknowns when brewing this Harvest Ale, all we can guarantee is an interesting beer.
Set for release April 2013
Colloquially known as ‘The Velvet Sledgehammer’, our Seasonal Stout is intense and deceptively smooth. Its rich dense palate is a complex matrix of high residual sugar, bitterness and an active alcohol vector.
Set for release June 2013.
Barrel Aged Vintage Stout
Aging in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for 12 months lends this beer added complexity. Due to this varied history, each barrel imparts its individual textures. On their merits, the barrels are blended back together to create the final beer, ready for drinking.
This Vintage is influenced by the addition of new American oak. This elevates the toasted coconut and sharp tannic grip in the mid palate. In keeping with previous vintages, the finish is a complex mix of treacle, coffee and tar.
Only 2,500 bottles available, individually numbered. 2011 vintage released.
Our last summer seasonal release was a farmhouse style Saison. It was light bodied and pale orange in appearance with a complex aroma dominated by spice and fruit esters. The palate finished slightly tart with a peppery dryness.
The next release is scheduled for November 2013.
