Inspired by the exuberance of the Romani Gypsy culture. Telegraph Gypsy Ale celebrates the restless and adventurous spirit in all of us. We brewed it with rye, unmalted wheat, and locally grown plums. Then we fermented it with Brettanomyces while listening to traditional Gypsy tunes. Itís wild, itís unique, itís delicious. So go ahead, stray from that well-trodden ground you are following, grab a bottle, and dance along a crooked path. Opa!

750ml bottle shared by noodleuser: pours a clear bright golden with a stringy-lacing whitehead. Has a fresh light fruity nose with some light pale malty sweetness and good lightly puckering sourness before a drier slightly warming finish. Pretty true to style and should age well.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2013
At YNWA, Kolding. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Funky aroma with lots of lambik character, and notable plums. Sweet and tart fruity flavour with plums, a hint of band-aid and tannin and some funk. A bit sterile, otherwise itís quite lambik-like overall
