DW on the Cusp

Yesterday the flavour Panel met DW it all its finished glory for the first time. They had loved the “green” version from the cask a month ago but felt that the bottle conditioned beer was a step up in class. The beer is sweeter than I had intended but the bitterness from the moderately high hopping rate and the heat of the alcohol ensure that it is balanced and never cloys. It is a very powerful drink even for 9.5% and is both fresh and satisfying. Dave Wickett himself loved the prototype saying “ Just fantastic. Very similar, but better than Deus. A truly great beer”. That’s all the praise I think anyone needs.

I have an anxious wait for the routine micro results and if that is clear, the beer will be available for sale on 4th October.
