Satsumas four-year run at the World Beer Cup in Belgium is now over and with it a huge wave of anticipation.
This year’s beer festival was a resounding success, and the beer festival organisers hope it will continue.
They were also looking ahead to the next round of the World Breweries Conference in the spring, and were hoping for a good result.
“We’ve had some great weather, we’ve had good beer.
We’ve been very happy with our performances and we’re very pleased with the beer,” said the beer maker’s founder, Sunil Agarwal.
Sunil’s company, Satsumo, is a family-run, all-organic beer producer.
Sunils beers are made from 100% natural ingredients, with the exception of hops, and he said the beers had a lot of character.
“It’s a little bit different, it’s a bit sweeter, it is a little darker.
It has a different flavour,” he said.
He said the company had always made its own saison, but decided to focus on the World beer competition because it was such a strong year for saisons.
“That was a big change for us.
It was a huge jump for us,” said Sunil.
The Satsums are a family business and Sunil said it was always important to him to have a healthy, sustainable business.
“The biggest thing is to maintain the quality of our beer.
And to keep that in check, and to keep doing things that will be in line with the sustainability,” he added.
“I’m proud to be part of that and I think we’ve got a good future ahead of us.”
The saison that is now on tap is called Satsumi, which means ‘pale red’ in Sanskrit.
Suniles saison has been aged in an oak barrel for two years, and it was first brewed in 2011, when he was 22.
“Satsumi has a strong character, and is a really good beer to drink,” said Satsuman.
Sunil is not the only person to have been inspired by Satsumin, but he said his focus has been on the style, not the beer. “
There are many saisons that are quite light and easy to drink, but for me, Samsumi is my favourite.”
Sunil is not the only person to have been inspired by Satsumin, but he said his focus has been on the style, not the beer.
“As I have matured and matured, I’ve developed a different palate and I’ve got this very deep, rich, dark, full flavour profile,” he explained.
“So it’s not really about me.
It’s about the beer.”
He said it would be important for saison makers to keep a balance between the two styles, and that saisons should be enjoyed in moderation.
“You have to have balance.
We’re all drinkers and we all like different kinds of beer, but we need to have our own thing,” he told The Hindu.
Sunildes saison is aged for six months in a French oak barrel.
It is brewed with 100% wheat malt, which makes the beer slightly lighter and more complex than the traditional saison style.
Sunile Agarwals beer is still being bottled, and can be found on tap at Satsumeas brewpubs in Belgium, France, and Denmark.
“He is still the man behind the beer, he still is the founder of the brewery.
He is still a big part of the business, he is still an entrepreneur,” said Vishaan Chaudhary, head of marketing and sales at Samsumas beer brand.
“But there are some very strong things happening in the beer industry, and I’m sure he’ll be involved in some way with that.”
