Gathering Red Currants & Peaches
Blended Barrel-aged Sour with red currants & peaches
Gathering Red Currants & Peaches represent fresh, whole fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. For this rendition, we sourced red currants from Ray Tousey Honey and peaches from Wright Farm–both farms nestled in the Hudson Valley. The fruit underwent carbonic maceration and spontaneous fermentation for a week before being blended with barrel aged sour beer. The result is a delicate, fruited sour with the process of spontaneous fermentation lending wild, funky yeast characteristics and a complex, lingering acidity reminiscent of a young lambic.
