2CROWS - SOUR RED WITH NS CHERRIES

CA$14.66
A Flanders Red-inspired beer with a grist of Vienna, Munich, Wheat, Spelt, Special B, Special Aromatic, Crystal 65, and Oats, hopped in the boil with both aged and new East Kent Goldings, and fermented in freshly-emptied Port barrels with a blend of red wine yeast and the Roeselare blend of Sacch, Brett, and bacteria. After aging for 3 months, dried cherries were added to the barrel (21 g/L), where they sat for over a year. Then, in July, 2019 (~16 months total aging at this point), the beer was transferred to the brewery’s blending tank, where it was allowed to condition on fresh cherries (300 g/L) for 8 weeks.
Assertively tart, with a touch of acetic character, with very rich and multidimensional cherry character, smooth and vinous.
