We have a fascination with Flanders Red style beer and its links to brewing in the UK. We also love them. Sour, but with a rounded sweetness; complex, but effortlessly drinkable. We had to try and make an interpretation of our own. These beers are often described as the most wine like of all beers. We thought we’d run with this idea and try and produce a beer that has more in common with a Burgundy than a Bitter. We used large quantities of roasted malts, including roasted rye malt and mashed them warmer than usual. In the boil we added aged hops to give the beer a note of tannins. Finally the beer was aged in a freshly emptied French Red Wine barrels with our own mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria. The result is a red coloured beer with tannins, spice, acidity, sweetness and a hint of oak and spice.
