Sour Red Ale, aged in red burgundy barrels with cherries. This beer is the second iteration of a project we have been working on at the brewery for a few years now. We wanted to create a modern sour ale aged in barrels that had the same complexity and depth of flavour that our favourite sours from the USA offer. After using a Belgian yeast strain to give a good foundation on which to build, we aged the beer in Burgundy barrels with the fruity for well over a year. Adding cultures of Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus at set points let us sour the beer gradually over many months and give layers of flavour that can only develop over time. The rich fruit aroma and flavours compliment the sharp sourness which subsides for more malt and yeast character to come through. Lively, dry and thirst-quenching, this beer is a beer to savour; a complex and mature sour ale that we feel fulfills our original objective.
