Style: Mixed Culture Fermentation Sour Red Ale
Released: May 2021
Inspired by the Belgian Flanders red style, this beer was brewed with lightly kilned malts to produce a deep redden hue.
Primary fermentation was undertaken using a strain of brettanomyces which produces intense red berry aromatics and a balanced funk, followed by a special blend of our mixed culture which has produced a characteristic sweet and sour balsamic quality, typical of the style.
This base beer was refermented on locally grown Scottish blackberries and tayberries (200g/l).
All ingredients were harvested within 33 miles of the brewery.
