Sour - Wild Ale
- Marque : Atom Brewing
"Our new blended series came about so we can showcase how we take ingredients and techniques normally used to create other products such as wine and cider and apply those to our beers. First in the series is a beer/wine hybrid using Cab Sauv grapes from the Western slope of Colorado. We conducted a punch down on the grapes twice a day for two weeks and then let the beer rest on them for 6 months. We then removed the beer off the grapes and blended it once more with 25% of our golden sour base to create the final product."
"Golden sour ale aged in neutral wine barrels for a year. Then additional aging was done in a used Bourbon barrel from Black Canyon Distillery used to make their Colorado straight Bourbon whiskey, "Old Blue". In honor of this collaboration and the sad fact that Black Canyon is no longer in existence we decided to name this beer after the Bourbon that came from this barrel."
"Golden Sour base beer aged for 6 months in used Zinfandel barrels, then added two pounds per gallon of fresh Palisade peaches to the barrels for an additional 6 months. Finally, an additional pound per gallon of peaches were added for two more months prior to bottling." Rupture de stock
