Two Metre Tall Soured Wild Plum Ale 750ml

$35.00

“A 100% spontaneously barrel fermented ale to which up to 25% w/v Agen and Stanley plums were added early in the process. The plums were sourced from the orchards of our neighbour on the banks of the River Derwent. This ale was racked from barrel at 12months and bottled “as is”, after minimal settling. Only lightly sparkling on release, the fermentation will continue to work “in-bottle” and produce a fully sparkling ale under the right conditions within 6-12 months from release. We have decided to release the ale at bottling rather than at the end of bottle conditioning so you can enjoy for yourself this magical & transformative process which was the original process by which sparkling, effervescent beer was produced in bottle. This ale is richly plum coloured, bracingly dry and redolent of the characteristics of the fleshy, fruity plums used. A remarkable partner beverage for a wide variety of fully flavoured food, plums are always at their best when partnering soft cheeses, game meats and rich sauces.” Abv: 6.4% Availability: Limited
