This beer is dark strong and well rounded; the richness of such a rotund beer is brought to an even keel by the late addition of Goldings hops and natural plum flavouring. Take the opportunity and go for the low hanging fruit, this sumptuous beer really is a plum!

Torkard - Dab Con One

Dab Con One - 7.5%

Dab Con One


7.5% abv

A 1:1 mix of ripe Dabinett bittersweet apples and very ripe Conference pears which were milled and fermented together. So therefore this is a "Pider". We decided to experiment a little with this ferment and use the QA23 cultured yeast rather than the wild yeast ferment we normally use. This has left a level of residual sweetness which suits the lightness of this pider from the pears and the soft light tannins from the cider apples.

Torkard - Burro
