Cyclic Beer Farm Xino Xano14142200
REGION: Catalunya, SP
750ml / ABV: 4%
Xino Xano is our spring / summer seasonal release. We use a traditional no boil Berliner Weisse brewing method, 50% organic Belgian malted barley, 25% Belgian malted wheat, 25% Spanish flaked wheat, co-fermentation with our house yeast and lactic acid bacteria, then finished with a big dry hop addition (variety varies). Tart, tropical and refreshing, it's perfect for quenching your thirst. Best drunk after a long cycle or at the beach overlooking the sea!
Our focus is primarily on production of mixed fermentation wild ales - inspired by the traditional beers of Belgium - for which we use a proprietary house blend of yeast and bacteria along with additional experimental yeast from our local flora. Seasonality and locality are both very important to us; we brew as the harvest supports and take advantage of local organic fruit, vegetables and herbs, some of which come from our family farm just outside Barcelona.
Our fruit ferments and wines, inspired by our early days of home brewing and winemaking, are produced using only local, organically grown fruits, fermented naturally by the action of the wild yeasts present on their skins. We source our fruit from across beautiful Catalunya, harvest by hand ourselves (in the case of grapes) or source directly from the farmers before selection and fermentation alongside the beer at our home in La Sagrera, BCN.
