About the Wampi 2020 – Foraged Sour by Yardley Brothers
Lamma Island is the place where Yardley Brothers originated. It is also home to wild wampi trees, which only fruit for a short season each year. Wampi is the hidden gem of Southeast Asian fruit with a phenomenally spicy, juicy, citrus-like character.
They set out on a mission to create a beer that reflects both Lamma Island’s creative unique character, as well as showcase the lush and bountiful landscape that is this small green island off the coast of Hong Kong.
Working with South Lamma’s Mo Tat Wan community and with the assistance of David Hopley, they foraged 35kg of fragrant wild wampi berries and brewed this limited-edition sour. Tart and juicy, complex and refreshing. This foraged sour is about as Lamma as you can get!
What is Wampi?
Clausena lansium, also known as wampi, from the Chinese huang pi (黄皮果, yellow skinned fruit) is a species of strongly scented evergreen trees 3–8 m tall, in the family Rutaceae, native to southeast Asia. The fruit is oval, about 3 cm long and 2 cm in diameter, and contains two to five seeds that occupy ~40-50% of the fruit volume. The wampi is cultivated for its fruit, which is a grape sized, fragrant citrus. Its skin and seeds are often eaten along with the pulp, much like kumquat. It is grown extensively in the New Territories of Hong Kong, and is a popular fruit among the indigenous Hakka villagers.
