Shnoodlepip – 6.5% – Pink Pepper + Barrels + Passion Fruit + Hibiscus
The next beer to appear this summer will be one of the most exciting we are yet to be involved with…
A collaboration of 3 brewers, 3 nationalities and 6 ideas.
We collaborate to learn, experiment and enjoy. With this beer we have explored new ideas, techniques, ingredients, combinations and processes.
Kelly Ryan from Good George Beer in NZ, Brett Ellis (originally from the US) from the Wild Beer Co, and Mark Tranter from Burning Sky Brewery have used their combined knowledge and experiences to create an incredibly unusual and complex beer, at every opportunity they have sourced an amazing ingredient or tried an alternative technique.
Grain – Spices – Yeast – Wood – Fruit – Flowers
20130724-095219.jpg Somerset Sharpham Park Spelt has been used for a full body. Pink peppercorns give a gentle sweet spiciness. Saison and Brettanomyces yeast strains lead to a dry spicy character that will continue to evolve. Wood-ageing in French red wine barrels for 4 months adds depth and oak. Passion-fruit brings a tart tropical fruit character. The 4 month ageing process has been finished off with amazingly tangy Hibiscus flowers.
That is one shnoodlepippin beer!
Shnoodlepip will be available in 330ml bottles and keykegs from mid-August.

Both Keg @ Hanging Bat and bottle @ home. Pours pink. Pepper spices with a red wine tannin. A saison/brett taste which with a fruit cider almost sweet but tart finish makes it an interesting and tasty drink. I liked the carbonation in the bottle more it lifted the flavours more than the almost flat Keg, but both are stunning drinks.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
On keg at Small Bar, Bristol July 2014. Pinkish in colour with a small, white, head and plenty of fizz. Tart berry fruits, a yeasty edge, oak, grassy hops, white pepper and a lingering, vinous, finish. Enjoyable.

ATulloch (74) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a slightly hazed orange with a lively white foam head which lasts. Very strange but nice aromas or sour passion fruit, wine, and orange. At first you get a bitter/sour apple cider like taste which relaxes into a nice tangy refresher bar zing. Hints of varnished wood and earth. Very strange unique beer. Could only have the one in a night though.

jamestulloch (1349) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head that gradually fades. No lacing. Aroma of cloudy cider, blood orange, copper coins, red wine, cinnamon and lemon. Flavour of tart rhubarb, strawberry jam and sour lemon juice. Thin body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. One of the strangest beers I’ve tried, with an incredibly complex aroma. Very unusual and interesting.

BeerViking (2441) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle, pinkish gold, nose is lightly tart with hints of lemon, grape and perfume. Palate is lightly sour and dry-sweet, with old wine and farmyard over caramelised tropical fruit and jam. Dry-bitter and faintly tart finish, with a little lingering jam. Fascinating!

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle shared at a Sour/Wild tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks fonefan for this bottle. Cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of passion fruits, oak, a vegetal touch, spiciness and a funky touch. Sourish flavor with passion fruit, funk, spices, wood and a drier finish, slightly lemony. Medium-bodied. Refreshing, slightly strange.
