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.

Ok, so this is probably one of the strangest beers I’ve ever smelt. It’s a slight rusty amber colour, clear, thin white foam head. Nose is pungent, and so complex and dissonant that my senses leap back from it. There’s good stuff in there like potent fresh raspberry, berry sour, herbs, citrous acidic, but then there’s some decay notes too\; malt vinegar, urine, funky farmyard, Brett yeast. And some black pepper too. Crazy. On the taste there’s much more balance. Crisp, refreshing, berry fruit, raspberry, slight vinous white wine, a light sour Berliner Weiss bitterness, slight urine acidic, lemon citrous, On the tongue it has a spicy and slight pepper linger. Weirdly once you’ve tasted it the nose doesn’t seem so crazy. It has a light sparkling wine quality to it like many of WB’s sours. It all comes together nicely. This is like the LSD of beers.

Bottle@Home. Fruity aroma mixed with glue. Hazy, amber, off-white head, fair lace. Sweetish, bitterless, light medicinal, fruity, light sour. Sticky and oily. Odd or even off-flavours. What is this???!

Interesting beer, where the nose has a of intrigue. Pours a rich golden colour with a pink hue. At the moment I think the passionfruit is dominating the brew, which is taking away from the overall package.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle at home in London. I think I got it from Utobeer. Pours clear, pink-gold with a frothy. The nose has some tangy berries, grape skins, mild acetic twang and suggestions of pepper. Light sweet flavor with moderate tart berries, further skins and pits, definitely some peppery spice. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced and dynamic finish, moderate tartness, clean pepper, melon, passion fruit, melon. Really nice. Great complexity.

Super unusual beer from wild beer again, Saison style aromas, drunk with spicy food, the pepper corns come through. Wouldn’t Drink it everyday , but a beer everyone should try.

Bottle cracked by Zero in Holland. Pours a pinkish orange color, head was small and so was the lace. Aromas and taste were brilliant with peach, passionfruit, nectarine, sugar, hibsicus and apples. This had a lot going on and it was all good. Cheers.

Bottle at Red Squirrel. Hazy orange with a pink tinge, thin head. Good saison aromas, lots of pepper and fruit. Taste has a sour note, and something srcumpy-cidery. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but I enjoyed it.
