Today we’re releasing our sixth and final limited edition kombucha of the year; Passion Fruit & Amarillo Hops. Available in cans and until stocks last.
This kombucha is a continuation of our journey into the wonderful world of hops. And with so many varieties available, we’re blessed and excited to continue pushing kombucha further. Expect another ‘tropical IPA style’ kombucha, which is similar to limited edition 3, and non-alcoholic. Perfect for the festive season.
Limited edition 3 (Passion Fruit & Mosaic Hops) had a lot of people excited and to this day we still receive requests to bring it back. We heard you loud and clear, but to keep things interesting we substituted Mosaic for Amarillo hop.
Amarillo is a relatively new hop with an interesting history. This hop was first found growing wild next to a field of Liberty at Virgil Gamache Farms. They began cultivating and eventually released it to the public in 2003.
Amarillo hops gives a distinct flowery, spicy, tropical, citrus-like flavor and aroma. The citrus has qualities of orange and lemon. Other aroma descriptors include grapefruit, melon, apricot and peach.
These qualities have made Amarillo a top 10 most popular hops for craft brewers.
Passion fruit & Amarillo hops will be available at Crisp and the YAYA Kombucha online store. Other stockists include: The Loft (on draft!! Maastricht) Bierbaum (Amsterdam), Tjins Toko (Amsterdam), Sterk (Amsterdam). More names to follow.
Previous Limited Editions
Before we introduced Citra Hop (#1 2017), Yuzu (#2 2019), Passion Fruit & Mosaic Hop (#3 2021), Pink Elderflower (#4 2021) & Rhubarb (#5 2021). Citra Hop became our fourth core range flavour, and was updated last year to 'Hops' using four American type of hops. Yuzu also became a core range flavour (the fifth) because of its very popular aromatic, zesty flavour. Did you know both of these flavours were awarded with a Great Taste Award in 2020 and 2021.
Last Summer (2020) we also launched a collaboration with Jarreau Vandal celebrating his album launch. This mango passionfruit, hops kombucha was inspired by NEIPA-style hazy beers. This Special Edition is another take on the New England IPA.
