The village of Kippen, nestled at the foot of the Gargunnock and Fintry hills was once home to the largest Grapevine in the world covering an area of 5000 square feet.
This pale ale has an almost vinous flavour and aroma, provided by the choicest New Zealand hops. Seriously fruity, floral and citrus, this beer showcases the best qualities of two stunning NZ hops.
Dominant flavours: Floral, citrus, tropical, fruity, bitter. Grapevine tastes great on its own or with Indian curries, spicy pizzas or chorizo. Serve at 4C for a refreshing tropical citrus hit or at 12C for a fuller bodied, fuller flavoured experience. No additives, no adjuncts; just four top quality, natural ingredients: Malt, Hops, Yeast and Water.

Malts: Maris Otter, Vienna
Hops: Magnum, NZ Cascade, Motueka
IBU: 43
OG: 1.054

Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

Clear, lively golden ale. In the aroma the fruit is slightly more dominant than the hope. There are flavours of hopes and fruit but it’s quite a floral beer on the whole. Balanced very nicely and very drinkable.

Dark amber, big fluffy white head. Body has a bit of creaminess to start off with but as this fades the low carbonation leaves it a bit watery. Reasonable hop presence yielding orange, grapefruit and pineapple. Malt is light and I think it needs more in the centre.

Heidbummer (266) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Keg at Hippo Sauchiehall St. Poiur hazy orange, foamy white head. Aroma of fruit and malt and some hops. Easy drinking smooth, malty, fruity with a slightly bitter edge. Excellent session beer.

larsga (7310) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body. Fruity wooden dusty aroma. Dry-sweet resiny citric taste with roasty pineapple notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity roasty dusty aftertaste with citric notes. The combination of flavours doesn’t quite work for me. The roasty goes poorly with the citric and fruity. (0.5l bottle, odd bins, Edinburgh.)
