Date-Banana Gruit brewed in tea with Kveik Hornindal, our YouTube Viewers’ Choice wine

We asked, you voted, we brewed. Through a series of polls, our YouTube Community page decided that we would brew a date and banana wine, sparkling, in the style of a big beer. We figured y’all would vote for a mead, but here we are! Start-to-finish this was pitch-to-glass in under one month. Not too shabby! While it kept a small amount of haze, the flavor is out of this world. Using mugwort, elderflowers, sumac, juniper, and star anise we made a gruit – and herbal bittering and flavoring blend. Kveik yeast taken up to 104F really made this thing “doin’ the most.” But how did it TASTE?
