‘Kveik’ is the word for ‘Yeast’ in Norwegian dialect. It is an ancient yeast, popular in Norwegian Farmhouse Ales, known to work well with fruity, tropical hops. The vinous lemon peel & pleasant herbal character from Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc marry nicely with the ripe orange, papaya & grapefruit flavours of Citra and Amarillo.
This is the first recipe from Orbit's newest brewer, Greg, who joined them from Five Points in September. It’s a vibrant, tropical, fruity pale ale rich in texture, aroma, and unusual brewing heritage. A balanced, refreshing finish.
