Style: Barrel Aged Blended Flanders Red with Scottish Blackcurrants
Released: April 2022
Inspired by Flanders Reds of old, Crimson Void is a blended sour red ale combining 80% provision strength ‘young’ stock beer aged in steel, with around 20% ‘mature’ stock beer aged in oak barrels. The combination of old and young beers has produced a complex sweet and sour flavour profile with a subtle oak character.
This blended base was transferred onto the spent fruit (strawberries) and lees from our previous batch of Oud Bruin – Blood Witch. We refermented this with 200g/l Scottish blackcurrants, sourced from farms located within 60 miles of the brewery.
Drink now or age, this will get weirder.
Hail the goat!
