Process: A blend of 18 and 30 month old golden ales brewed with malted barley and raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels. The beer was refermented on Aronia berries in barrel for 5 months. It was then blended back with further barrel stock before bottling.
Conditioning: Packaged with a small amount of priming sugar for natural carbonation in the bottle. We do not add yeast at this point, or at any point in the process. Bottles laid to rest on their side and conditioned until release.
Ingredients: Malted barley, raw wheat, aged hops (whole leaf fuggle, strisselspalt, hersbrucker & saaz), aronia berries, water.
