At about 11% alcohol by volume Melchior is true to style by being heavly malt based using pilsner, wheat, munich and cara malts. It is brewed using 2 English hops Challenger, East Keng Goldings and the Czech Saaz. Davy adds the Belgian influence by using mustard seeds to balance out the sweetness in the beer.

Malt: Pilsen, wheat, munich 15, cara 120
Hops: challenger, EK goldings, Saaz

Spices: mustard seeds
Primary fermentation: 1 week at 23°C
Secondary fermentation: 3 weeks at 15°C



Tasting Notes

Appearance:
Full bodied complex ale with yellow orange and small head.

Aroma:
Yeast flavors are up front with a nice malt profile.

Flavor:
The mustard works well to dry out the palate to allow the yeast to explode. The malt sweetness is a backbone for all the other taste. The hop flavors are both earthy and fruity.

Finish:
Heavily hopped for a long, bitter finish.
