This sour is fermented with wild yeast strains brettanomyces and Cher Ami, our house mixed culture, and refermented with raspberries followed by ageing in ex-Sangiovese red wine barrels sourced from Emilia Romagna in Northern Italy. Swathes of rich and juicy raspberry, delicately balanced amidst Brett funk, tartness and tannin, giving a subtle juicy fruit character from the barrels lingering vinous wood character and echose of sweet Beaujolais.Brewdog
The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.
A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates.
Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter. No better partner to a lunchtime snack!Batham's Brewery
