  2. Behind the Numbers: 20|01 Belgian Pale

    Available from today, 20|01 is our first recipe in a new style: Belgian Pale. This post aims to explain a little about this style of beer and what inspired us to create one.

    Distinct from Belgian blondes and strong golden ales, Belgian Pale is yet another example of the country’s knack for skillful balance in brewing. From the outset of Brew By Numbers we’ve taken inspiration from multiple sources, but the beguiling balance of Belgian beers across a range of styles, strengths, intensities and fermentation methods has always fascinated us most. 20|01 is our first attempt to replicate this balance in a uniquely refreshing, accessible yet characterful beer style.

    Belgian Pale has the dubious honour of being one of the country’s least well-defined styles, with its label applied on ratings websites to beers as varied as Orval, Westvleteren Blonde, Cuvée de Ranke and De La Senne’s Taras Boulba. Whilst each offers evidence to belong in this nebulous grouping of beers, it’s that last example that we feel provides the best framework for the modern version of the style. De La Senne’s hoppy, pale beers are easily our biggest inspiration for our own take on Belgian Pale.

    Crisp, fruity and with a dry, refreshing hop bitterness, 20|01 is our own expression of these bright and understated beers. The clean grain character is kept simple and drinkable, using nothing but low colour pils malt to give an even, light body. Saaz takes the lead in the hop bitterness, with the fruitier and floral notes coming from Summer, itself an Australian variety with Saaz parentage. We chose not to employ any spicing in this beer, to keep the flavours clean.

    Using the same saison yeast strain that we use for other Belgian styles, in this instance we lowered the fermentation temperature to 24 degrees C (as opposed to the low thirties that our saisons ferment at), so there’s less fruity ester character, but the same crisp carbonation and texture the style needs. The subtle interplay between the yeast and hops provides a gentle spiciness alongside firm bitterness, to really cleanse the palate.

    20|01 Belgian Pale – Summer & Saaz is now available from pubs, bars and bottle shops stocking our beers, as well as at our taproom both on draught and in 330ml bottles in take away. We hope that it’s a beer to suit sunny days, warm evenings, and the refreshment needed at the end of a day’s work, in as many servings as necessary.

    Cheers!

     


  3. Launching this Friday: 14|03 Tripel – Ella

    May 11, 2016 by Dave Seymour

    After patiently maturing for several months, our newest Tripel, hopped with Ella, is now ready for release.

    Belgian Tripel is easily one of our favourite styles here at BBNo, one that we’re excited to release each year with a new hop bill, and taste it as it evolves. Our first Tripel used American hop Mosaic, bringing slick, buoyant passion fruit and blueberry notes. The second expression used New Zealand Wai-Iti and lemon zest to weave in soft citric sweetness that has aged gracefully into mellow, caramelised lemon flavours.

    For our third Tripel, we’re returning to using hops from the southern hemisphere, this time using Australian hop Ella, noted for its pronounced floral and juicy fruit character. The indulgently fruity nose evokes peach and apple blossom, pineapple cocktails and tropical fruit sundaes, whilst that crucially smooth and slick Tripel body all but glides across the palate, with just a prickle of gentle spicing from coriander and orange peel to balance the beer’s yeast character. That rounded, finely-balanced body is what defines Tripel’s bewildering drinkability and provides such an exciting canvas upon which to experiment.

    Those of you who have tried the original 14|01 Tripel – Mosaic might remember we aged some of it in white wine barrels to become 12|05. If you want to find out what happened to some of the latest Tripel, well, you’ll just have to wait and see. For now, the new 14|03 Tripel – Ella will be pouring at our taproom on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May (with 330ml & 750ml bottles available to take away) and on sale in trade from Monday 16th May.

    Cheers!
