Troegs Scratch # 33 is Out!

TroegsScratch From Troegs:

Starting with a blend of pale malt and wheat along with honey malt – a pale Canadian barley with a distinctive sweet finish – Scratch #33 includes orange peel, coriander, elderflower and honey bush for a subtle fruit balance that complements the pepper zest of Saison du Pont yeast. Following the boil, the wort passed through our hopback (filled with spices) and then began a rapid ferment at a higher than typical temperature for an ale yeast. Following fermentation, Scratch #33 was bottle-conditioned with Westmalle yeast and warm-aged for two weeks to create a vibrant carbonation with an effervescent finish.
