Two Metre Tall Sour Cherry Ale 750ml

$44.00

“Once the slow, complex, wild fermentations of the spontaneously fermented base ale (which becomes our Original Soured Ale) have reached a balanced stage (at around 2 years), we racked a portion to oak barrels (released from a well-known local winery) and added up to 25% w/v whole “Northstar” Morello Cherries from an orchard directly across the Derwent River from our farm and allowed a further wild fermentation to complete in barrel over the ensuing winter. After 12 months, when all fermentation activity had subsided, the resultant highly coloured ale was racked and settled for a further 6 months prior to bottling. Intense red, lifted fruit characteristics, structured mouth feel and an intensely long dry finish … behold the result!” Abv: 6.5% Availability: Limited
