”Hans Christian, jeg går op og lægger mig!” Sådan kender vi Maude – skrøbelig og neurotisk. Men der findes også den anden Maude: Hende der hjælper Hr. Stein i nødens stund, hende som vender hjem fra en festlig tur til Paris. Denne Maude vil vi hylde hér: Med en champagneøl – naturellement! Lys, frisk og raffineret. På basis af Wiener- og Hvedemalt har vi ladet denne øl gære på champagnegær. Efterfølgende har den lagret på tank i syv måneder ved 5 grader. Julie Marie Christensen (Brewchimp Brewing) og Kristoffer Wolff (Herslev Bryghus) var med på selveste brygdagen og initiativtagere til at der udelukkende skulle bruges fransk humle. Resultatet er en opalescerende, strågul øl med en duft og smag af grønne æbler, melon, nelliker og citrus: ”Noget der gi´r den en smittende optimisme”, som brygmesterens ven Thomas Knudsen udtrykker det så fint. Overgæret med champagnegær.
