EDGE BREWING PROJECT NZ WHEAT

Edge Brewing Project NZ Wheat. The Edge Brewing Project is a collaboration between Melbourne’s Adam Betts, of Northdown Beer, and Christian Skovdal Andersen, of Denmark’s Beer Here.

Whilst several Beer Here/Northdown collaborations have already been released, The Edge Brewing Project is designed to be a contract gypsy brewery. This is just a fancy way to say they brew beer using other company’s equipment and hop between different breweries. (See what I did there?)

The NZ Wheat was their entry into the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) 2013 and they described it as a ‘New World Wheat Ale’. When “new world” is thrown into a beer name, it just means it’s been tweaked from traditional ingredients. In the case of this beer it’s the use of Rakau hops from NZ, rather than a traditional noble hop like Hallertau, Saaz, Tettnanger or Hersbrucker.

It’s lager-like with a fine, foamy head. Sweet, honey-like lager flavour with a soft and rounded finish. It’s ok but it’s nothing special. If you poured me a James Boags Premium Lager side by side I probably couldn’t pick the difference.
