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.

Draft. Holy Mackinaw buttered popcorn, diacetyl-ridden. If you liek your popcorn sour and peppery.

Bottle brought over by MArtin and shared on the balcony in the morning with Rachel & Nadia. Morning beer in the sun - happy days. A delicious, tart & very dry sour with peppery elements as advertised. I enjoyed it greatly.

tfredvik (2055) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2017
Hazy golden body with a white head. Quite strong aroma of barnyard, lemon and acidic berries. Quite strong flavour of tart berries, lemon, acidic fruits and gentle barnyard. Light and dry on the palate, moderate carbonation. Quite nice, but I was hoping for something far more complex.

[75 cl bottle shared with Svensenga smak & behag, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Orange pinkish color with off-white head. Aroma has nice lambic style funk with some floral notes and light spices. Taste starts tart but also with light floral sweetness. Finish has hibiscus and tart fruits. Light body, really dry and well carbonated. Overall it’s a nice experiment with interesting flavors.

danlo (3286) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, thin white foam head and aroma of pepper, passionfruit, some funk. Taste is peppery upfront, grainy, sour, funk followed by fruity, passionfruit and flowery notes. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish with alittle lingering pepper. Interesting, quite drinkable.

Bouteille, merci à Boutip! Bière orangée et voilée surmontée d’une moyenne mousse blanche assez dense qui colle parfaitement aux parois du verre. Au nez, les brett sont bien présents, on perçoit une acidité très agréable,des notes bien fruitées de griottes, de cassis et de mûres, accompagnées d’une touche de foin et de bois. En bouche, il y a une belle complexité, mais pour moi, ça ne fonctionne pas. Les fruits sont bien présents, ainsi qu’une acidité bien contrôlée, ainsi que des notes boisées et légèrement épicées, mais une étrange sensation de tabac et de craies viennent s’y mêler et rendent l’expérience assez désagréable. Le corps est moyen et légèrement collant.

TimE (6163) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 26, 2016
Hazy golden amber color. Pepper, big sour dried mangoes in the nose. Tons of sourness, tons of pepper, light fruity and tons and tons of sourness. Awesome.

On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a hazy rose gold with small off white head. The aroma is funk, oak, spice. Medium body, funky, lemon, decent.
