COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and Bottled, Special
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
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!
Note:- 2015 release has a change in label design with Fork Brewing replacing the Good George logo.

Lonick (1203) - Edinburgh, - SEP 25, 2013
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.

Fullpintofbeer (210) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Tap @Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol. Tiny, quickly disappearing head, pink/orange colour, hazy. Aroma of strawberries, raspberries and other berries. Sour taste with tonic/dry aftertaste. Light body, long finish, lively. Could have been better if not that annoying dry aftertaste.

Style et résumé: Fruit de la passion, bois, poivre et hibiscus.
Comment: Bouteille de 330ml. 2015
Portrait: Une bière orangée avec légère mousse. Un nez de fleurs blanches et de poivre. Une bouche sur le vomi qui rappelle la papaye et le fruit de la passion. La texture est superbe, ronde et crémeuse. Le poivre est bien présent. Drôle de bibitte facile à boire.
Note: 6+/10

hohops (798) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
2015 edition. Appearance- very cloudy light amber, half a finger off-white head. Aroma- lambic, wood, oak, yeast, freshly cut hedgerow, must, pepper, ammonia, tropical fruit, grapefruit. Taste- loads of tart fruit, grapefruit, rhubarb, gooseberry, spices, vinous, oak towards the finish, fruit lambic, tannins, champagne, yeast, dry lip-puckering finish. Unusual, quite good, a bit like a cross between wine and lambic.

SlovakSniper (5071) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
Un liquide qui tombe platement dans mon verre. Cette robe orangée montre quand même un anneau de mousse. Le nez est certainement boisé, terreux, floral, épicé et fruité d’une indeScriptible façon. Le goût de planche de bois, de framboises, de chair de piments et de fleurs est étrangement intéressant. Le corps sans réelle tenue n’est cependant pas à la hauteur de mes attentes. La finale légèrement aigre est assez agréable.
