Six Of The Best - Barrel Aged Sours - 6 Beer Mixed Case
This case contains the following beers:
Garage Project Muse #2
Taking the Muse house sour and infusing it with stunning colour, aromatics and flavour of dried hibiscus flower and the lifted citrus twist of freshly zested lemon peel.
This beer spends a year in Chardonnay barrels partying with the nicest bugs we know. Lean and fruity, peachy and very dry. Delicate, racy and moreish.
This dark saison spent 10 months in a freshly emptied ex. Canterbury wine barrel on top of Canterbury raspberries and Otago sour cherries. Wilderness also pitched a blend of brettanomyces which brings some background complexity to the beer. This beer is all about showcasing south island produce. No bacteria was pitched into this beer - all the acidity is coming from the sour cherries, emphasized by a complete fermentation.
Brekeriet - Vild Howdy
Howdy is a delicate kettle sour brewed in May last year, then aged in a wine foeder and dry-hopped with Huell Melon.
Howdy is a collaboration with our great friends from Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co.
Kerry Gray from Choice Bros. suggested a connection beer and handed us a vial of The Dirty Dozen from East Coast Yeast. We made a strong version of our Grisette then poured it into a freshly emptied Gewürztraminer , batch 3 a pinot gris barrel, then threw in the brett.. Barrel aged 10 months, Autobarn is more funk than sour, with winey vanilla overtones from the wood. Silver medal at N.Z.
8Wired Wild Feijoa
Ale brewed with feijoas & aged in wine barrels. This is the third vintage of this variety, with Wild Feijoa 2015 and 2016 being released the last 2 years... be sure to savour the flavour.
