Style: Golden Sour aged in Steel
Released: February 2022
Special Release: Limited to 108 bottles
This golden sour beer was fermented with a mixed culture in a small stainless-steel tank for six months and bottle conditioned for a further three months. As such, Riddle of Steel represents our longest aged non-barrel beer release so far.
We picked this small batch for its own release as it presents exceptional aged character, having developed a juicy sweetness, balanced by a delicate acidity and funk.
The bottle conditioning allowed the Brettanomyces yeast to gradually carbonate the beer, providing a thick lasting foam, and amplified yeast character. Completely unhopped and unfruited.
All ingredients were harvested within 33 miles of the brewery.
