For this beer, we really wanted to push the concept of a white ale into a thicker, bigger-bodied version for the winter months. To make it happen, we took our base White ale recipe, and then amped it up with 40 kg of blood orange purée and a healthy dose of lactose. The result is a creamy full bodied white ale with loads of apricot & orange flavour and aroma.
