Zintuki

Blending + Sour + Ninkasi

Ninkasi has long been a favourite at Wild Beer due to its versitility of flavours that work so beautifully with food. We wanted to take this further by bringing in some acidity to balance with the rich saison character and so we blended in our infamous sour beer 'Somerset Wild'. The result was divine!

Unique Aspect

Zintuki is Ninkasi’s younger, wilder sister (and goddess of food and dinner.) A perfect name for this blend of Ninkasi (our Celebratory beer made with a small amount of local apple juice) and Somerset Wild (a sour beer fermented using yeast and bacteria from local orchards).

A combination of the complexity and champagne spritziness of Ninkasi with the dry lemon acidic sharpness of Somerset Wild, gives a blend richly aromatic on the nose, refreshing on the tongue and deeply satisfying on the pallet.

Food Pairings

Zintuki was designed, and named, to be the perfect complement to food, this beer is heavenly with fish, chicken or cheese.

The zippy carbonation and brisk acidity of Zintuki makes it excellent at cutting through fatty dishes. However, it is delicate and nuanced with surprisingly low intensity. Think chicken roasted with lemon and thyme, barbecued mackerel or braised pork belly. However, like most pairings, simplicity is key. Pair with Westcombe Dairy’s cheddar for a jaw dropping taste of our terroir (we brew on Westcombe Dairy's Farm).
