Murray's Libertine

Style
Belgian farmhouse ale
ABV
5.0%

Murray's brewers Shawn Sherlock and Ian Watson unveiled a range of rather extraordinary Belgian styles at a dinner this month. Of these, only the Libertine is on wider release, found on draught at Manly and good beer venues. Given the brewery has its residence at a place called Bob's Farm, perhaps it's fitting that they should release a farmhouse style ale. At a relatively light 5 per cent, this isn't a heavy-hitter in the mould of so many modern farmhouse ales. It was brewed to be fairly light, crisp, dry and sessionable, aimed more towards what was commonly consumed by Belgian workers in times gone by. According to Shawn: "It's a very dry beer which helps with drinkability but it has some really interesting, funky farmhouse ale yeast character."
