A Sherried Tart Saison Aged in Oak Barrels with Too Much Pear.
This is our oldest sour beer. I hesitate to call it beer even...
It started life as our first Saison brew in August 2017 and when the barrels wouldn’t sour, we added fruit to help them along. We used far too much pear in this barrel, as it took a few years for the sugars to ferment. The barrel naturally oxidized in the style of a sherry as half (!) of it evaporated over time.
We decided to bottle it still like sherry. A perry sherry?
2022 Vintage. 750mL. 8.7% alc/vol.
10 cases of stoppered bottles were produced, as this is more of a sipper. We've found that as the beer warms, there is an underlying browned apple aromatic note reminiscent of slicing apples in preparation for making pie, and so we've attached a stick of cinnamon to each bottle so that you can experiment with different options - chilled or heated up, spiced or not.. you can decide!
