Styx Chenin Blonde – Beer/Wine Hybrid

Styx is the new brand for beer wine collaborations with winemaker Werner Engelbrecht.

This vintage was made with 50% beer wort and 50% cinsaut must and fermented with beer yeast. It delivered a light almost champagne like coral pink beer (or wine) with distinct fruit, berries and spice character from the hop and grape properties. The finish is light with almost no bitterness. Looking forward to making at least 2 styles and playing with spontaneous fermentation in next year’s vintage.
