Green Gully Island Beer Surf Session Ale

Style
Farmhouse Session Ale
ABV

The Surf Session Ale could be about as good an example of Green Gully's ethos as you'll find in one of their beers. It uses a farmhouse yeast – in this case a kveik strain – as well as homegrown hops – Hallertau and Cluster. And it's designed as a teaser to lure people into the world of farmhouse styles; down the rabbit hole, as brewery founder Luke Smith puts it.

The result is the sort of beer you might expect to enjoy during a session in a Belgian or Northern French bar of café, reminiscent of a gentle blonde ale. There's a faint flicker of floral hops, a hint of something lemony and soft, bread-in-the-oven malts served with a dash of honey. It's not so much bitter as clipped by a little, presumably yeast-derived tang, and a great introduction to Green Gully's lineup.
