Wild Beer Co. collaborated with Side Project, Missouri, to create this transatlantic sour saison. Missouri yeast cultures were flown over to Somerset where they eloped with Wild Beer's wild cultures in fresh white wine barrels. Brewed without hops, this beer is all about fermentation flavours and barrel character. Acidity from both pomegranate and wild microbes are balanced by fragrant red rose petals and drying tannins from the Burgundy barrels.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
