Style: Spontaneously Fermented Golden Ale
Description: Process: A blend of 1 & 2 year old golden ales brewed with malted barley and raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels. The beer was moved onto Triomphe d’Alsace grape pomace in tank. It remained there for 2 months with punch-downs performed for the initial stages of refermentation. We then blended in a portion of beer which had refermented on Ben Alder blackcurrants from Norfolk. The beer was left to homogenise before further blending and 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 side and conditioned until release.
