Jackie O's: Orange Crates 8.1% [500ml]
They say “This collaboration was inspired by an iconic Trappist beer. Orange Crates began as a Belgian-style blonde ale, fermented with historic Belgian ale yeast, and dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops. The resulting dry-hopped Belgian Blonde was then conditioned on Brettanomyces claussenii for 2 months. It then went through a second conditioning in the bottle with Brett. C. for 9 months prior to release. This is a toast to arguably one of the most well respected, recognisable, and style bending beers ever created. A deep cut of some of the grooviest funk brewed with our friends at The Answer in RVA!
We say “The best thing about our ColdChain Programme is that it allows us to work with #WorldClass breweries such as Jackie O’s to bring their amazingly rare beers to our shores, ensuring they taste as good here as they do in their tap room. The Belgian yeast flavour is present throughout the beer, against a backdrop of fresh fruit, heavy doughy malts and candied peel. This would be a prime candidate for our buy 1 cellar 2 programme.”
