SAISON  &

 

Saison Zest

Saison Anise is a sustaining drink, strong and full-flavoured. Aged for two months in the bottle, it pours copper gold. Anise has a complex grain bill; using Canterbury pilsner malt and crystal malts from Gladfields.

 

Floral hop varieties, harmonise with candi sugar and certain spices, producing an elusive and enticing aroma. Our saison yeast envelops all into a drink that will beg another.

 

Pour gently into a goblet, drink slowly and enjoy in moderation. Cheers to our Star! - Anise.

Saison Zest is the farmhouse ale made in the French speaking, Wallonian province of Belgium. Traditionally it was a refresher for tired and thirsty farm labourers.  

 

Saison Zest is a modern interpretation, a stronger full flavoured brew. Orange of hue with a big rocky head, aged for two months in the bottle. We've chosen a simple grain bill that showcases Gladfield's  superb malts and added Orange Zest.

 

Paired with floral and citrusy hops, our saison yeast imparts massive character and a dry finish. We believe Zest will refresh and sustain the farm worker or office shirker. Enjoy in moderation, it's stronger than it seems!

Saison Anise

handleft hand

Saison Poire is an easy drinking and sustaining beer, rich in character and complexity. A deep golden hue, pour Poire gently from the bottle.

 

We combined Gladfield's pilsner malt with a small proportion of wheat, toffee and crystal malts. Three classic varieties of hops meld with candi sugar, dried pears and spices, and our super saison yeast.

 

A sweet aroma and full fruity flavour, the drinker is rewarded with a dry finish. Drink slowly to savour the flavour, and let the goblet warm in your hand. To good times and good health. Sante' !

Saison Poodlefaker

Poodlefaker is a spiced and festive ale, to celebrate a summer Christmas in New Zealand. Ginger and spices and southern Rata honey, melds with subtle Wakatu hops. Gladfield's finest malt and a super saison yeast.

 

We enjoyed making Poodlefaker ,our seasonal Saison Noel.

 

You'll have to ask the Corona Kid in Blenheim what Poodlefaker means, we've run out of space on the label.

 

Merry Christmas and safe holiday season from Craftwork!

Grisette

Grisette is a type of Belgian farmhouse ale, related to the Saison style. Native to the French speaking Hainaut region in Wallonia. Grisette was served to miners, often by young maids dressed in grey smocks - the supposed origin of the name.

 

The grain bill often contained wheat, but we chose the ancient grain spelt, together with Gladfield's finest barley malt. We've been moderate with hops, choosing English and a noble variety. The yeast melds the grain and hops into a perfect refresher, after a hard day in the mine....or office....Enjoy!
