Keen as Mustard is a five-grain barrel fermented ale aimed at showcasing some of the more primary fermentation characteristics of our house culture. It was brewed on March 14th, 2018 and made of entirely single origin NSW barley, emmer (an ancient strain of wheat), rye, spelt and wheat. It underwent a primary fermentation in six French oak barriques for one month and before undergoing a three month tertiary fermentation and conditioning in bottle.
At release, the beer smells of lifted sweet citrus blossom & orange soda. The palate is quite textural and a little heavier than the airy aromatics with a full bitter orange core and an immediate finish with a hint of tartness.
