Days Of Creation
SOUR RED ALE AGED IN BURGUNDY BARRELS WITH RASPBERRY
This 2018 vintage is the third release and the first time Thornbridge have been able to choose from a range of different age barrels to create an overall blend of one, two and three year-old beer. Sharp acidity and rounded fruit flavour, this beer is growing in complexity year on year. Aged in burgundy barrels with raspberries, cultures of Brettanomyces, Pediococcus and Lactobacillus, this is an incredibly complex beer with notes of spicy red fruits and vinous oak.
Bottle Size: 375ml
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!
