Gulzig is a beer that has very atypical hop and Brett characteristics, not at all what you might expect from a double dryhopped wild ale, but the brewers couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. It steered away from the exotic, tropical notes that are usually associated with Brett beers and became something altogether more European, dare we say Dutch. Gulzig is a mildly tart and bitter pale ale with lots of fruity notes and a good deal of barnyard funk. Juicy tangerine, a touch of leather and subtle notes of blackberry in the finish make this Bretty beer a surprisingly warm and familiar experience that will bring out the glutton in you.
Brewed by Nevel Artisan Ales in Nijmegen (The Netherlands), a brewery launched in 2016 by Mattias and Vincent after being homebrewers. Nevel has now a small team and produces 1500 litres a day, mainly using local foraged herbs and flowers, testing wild fermentations and trying to get closer to the farmhouse styles.
