Barrel aged sour golden ale. Select blend of golden ales aged in various wine barrels, Brattleboro wild mixed culture.
"This barrel aged sour golden ale is a select blend of golden ales aged in red and white wine barrels, fermented with Brattleboro wild mixed culture. 5.9%abv. November 2019 blend vintage, brewed in 2018.
The pale base malt recipe of this beer allows the bright apricot notes from our wild yeast to shine, and the flavors of red and white wine barrels to come through. The long maturation time in oak harmonizes the flavors, and acts as a backdrop to the phunky flavors that only 18 months with mixed microbes can do. A touch of malic acid from chardonnay barrels also adds to the velvety complexity of this beer. The result is complex yet balanced, fruity, and of course, phunky."
