Cosmic Crush Peach
PEACHES SOUR ALE AGED IN RED WINE BARRELS
Our barrel-aged Scottish sour fermented with 1000kg of white peaches from Campania, Italy before being transferred to red wine barrels from Emilia Romagna where ageing, acidity and wood all work their magic.
This Sour pours a hazy golden-yellow with aromas of freshly cut peaches. On the palette the juicy sweetness and dry, fuzzy skin-like body is complemented by a bright and balanced acidity. Italian red wine barrels impart a complexity that enriches to this dry yet mouth-watering beer.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
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
Oats, Pilsner, Wheat
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.
Hallertau Blanc, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Magnum
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!
