Days of creation is a true labour of love, a sour red ale aged in red burgundy barrels with Raspberries.
We wanted to create a modern sour ale that, aged in barrels, would have the same complexity and depth of flavour of our favourite sours from the USA.
After using a Belgian yeast strain to give a good foundation on which to build, we aged the beer in Burgundy barrels with the fruit for well over a year. Adding cultures of Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus at set points let us sour the beer gradually over many months and give layers of flavour that can only develop over
The rich fruit aroma and flavours complement the sharp sourness which subsides for more malt and yeast characters to come through.
Lively, dry and thirst quenching, this a beer to savour; a complex and mature sour ale that we feel fulfils our original objective.
