We brewed a dextrinous wort with raw wheat and flaked oats over a base of TexMalt San Jacinto 2-Row and Wildfire Pale Malt. We then pitched our mixed culture in stainless steel with a bio-trans dry hop of Ekuanot and Amarillo. Following primary, we refermented the beer with fresh, hand-juiced Dancy Mandarins & Hamlin Oranges from Orange Blossom Farm in Utopia, Texas west of San Antonio. We then dry hopped the beer two more times with Ekuanot and Sabro cryo before adding the hand-processed zest from the mandarins and oranges! 100% naturally conditioned in bottles and kegs.
This ode to Texas citrus has notes of Orangina, mimosa, honeysuckle, orange blossom perfume, Painkiller cocktail, and Lacto-fermented orange marmalade.
