Barrel-aged red sour.

Clear

Description

Barrel-aged in French oak barrels formerly maturing Shiraz from the Bird in Hand winery in the Adelaide hills, this red ale has first been fermented clean in stainless steel with a mix of 2 yeast strains. At the end of fermentation half has been transferred into barrels while the other half has been cool crashed and decanted before being transferred to barrels. Once in barrels, it has aged with Belgian lactobacillus, pediococus and brettanomyces. After extracting enough oak character, the barrels have been blended to reach the perfect balance. It is smooth and round with clear confit red berries character, toasted malt, oaky vanilla and funk. It is worth swirling and oxidating in the glass to release it’s full presence. This Beer is alive.
