Firestone Walker 'UnderCurrants' Wild Ale Fermented with Black Currants 375ml

Availability: In stock

"In 2018 we challenged ourselves to using an array of fruit new to our palettes and practices. When offered a high quality freshly picked Black Currant sample, we couldn’t resist. We present to you a metamorphosis for your senses.  Using 12 to 36month aged Agrestic Ale as a base, to which we add 1.5lbs/gal Black Currants, the beer undergoes the final maturation in our French Oak “Fruiders” for an additional four months.  A convergence of supple tannin and deep purple pigments, gooseberry jam, a mouth-watering acidity and earthy leather elicit notes of a beer having vinous roots.  A new variant to one of the Barrelworks pioneers is born. Santé!"
