Style: Barrel Aged Flanders Red Style Sour with Cherries
Released: May 2021
Special Release: Limited to 100 bottles
This collaboration with The Hanging Bat, in Edinburgh, is based on a traditional Flanders Red aged in a red wine demi barrique.
The contents of this barrel were perpetually blended to create an exceptionally complex beer, as it is a mixture of three-year, two-year and one-year old beers fermented with a wide variety of microbes, including spontaneous cultures and sherry flor.
This batch was refermented in steel with a small quantity of pressed sour cherry juice (total 50g/l) in order to retain and emphasise the character of the base beer.
