High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

Draught @ SBWF’12

Pours yellow orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, malts, fruits and grain. Taste is malty with notes of grassy hops, fruits and hints of caramel. Finish is sweetish and slightly malty with a bitter end. Okay, quite easy to drink.

Kauge (603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2015
Tap at Speakeasy in Tallinn. Slightly hazy golden, head off-white, retains nicely. The nose is fruity, floral, also something disturbingly vegetably or smth, citric - a somewhat old school vibe. Flavour similar, quite bitter. Carbonation average, body medium, dryish on the palate. Not a big fan of this.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Dorée-orangée, col blanc. Arôme malt grillé, rétro houblonné fruité tirant sur un léger tropical mais au rétro-nasal donnant qcq notes nobles d’où ressort un peu plus d’amertume houblonnée. Palais est houblonné, malt pâle et grille le tout restant assez anglais dans la base avec une petite note de levure en retrait. L’amertume qui reste assez noble dans son ensemble s’apparente plus à une bière anglaise.
