Red rose + Pomegranate+ Barrel-Aged
We were delighted to have been paired up with Side Project Brewing from Missouri for the Rainbow Project 2018. Our allocated inspirational colour for this year was Red! We decided to bring our shared
of wild yeast and barrel aging together, culminating in a transcontinental sour Saison.
For this project we decided to bring our shared ethos of wild yeast and barrel aging together, culminating in a transcontinental sour Saison. With 6 months in barrel and 6 months in bottle, the wild yeasts from Westcombe Somerset, & Missouri USA have run riot building complexity and flavour development. The wild yeasts of Missouri, wrangled by Cory and Side Project, were flown to us to mingle with the Somerset beasties for a transcontinental co-fermented, barrel aged sour Saison. Brewed without hops we have incorporated the colour red with the additions of pomegranate and rose petals. A funky mixture of microbes in burgundy wine barrels lends a tart acidity and farmhouse slant while the fragrant rose and pomegranate play with the woody tannins in Rosa Rouge. Less
