Hermit Thrush Brewery, BrattleBerry - 16oz Can
From the brewery:
Sour golden ale aged in an oak foudre for 18 months with Dutton Farm (VT) raspberries and apples, fermented with Brattleboro wild mixed culture. 5.7% abv.
First we make Brattlebeer, and then we make Brattleberry. Brattlebeer ages for 10-12 months on Vermont apples in an oak foudre with a history dating back to the 1800’s. To make Brattleberry, we throw in fresh local raspberries and age it for another 6-8 months. The result is a beautiful clear rosé colored beer with a balanced raspberry flavor, and a crisp champagne like finish. The use of fresh fruit allows our wild mixed culture yeast to shine and compliment the fruit, instead of one masking the other.
