Golden Raven Barrel-Aged Sour Ale

8.3% abv

 

Golden Raven is a blend of 66% sour ale aged in American Oak, and 33% spontaneous sour ale aged in French Oak. beautifully aromatic and complex, having picked up some color and notes of berries and funk creating a balanced and quenching acidity that compliments the aromas.

 

We brewed a strong blonde sour ale and aged in American Oak barrels that previously held our raspberry sour beer Raven & Rubus. After rinsing out the spent fruit, the beer spent 10 months in those barrels, gaining influence from the mixed-culture ingrained in the oak. The former bourbon casks were generously provided by our friends at Raven & Rose in Portland, and this is our second beer using them. 

 

These casks were blended with 14 month old spontaneous sour beer from our koelschip program that was aged in French Oak, before a final refermentation in the bottle with pear juice providing natural carbonation.

 

The resulting beer is from the old raspberry sour ale, even though there was no fruit added to this beer., making Golden Raven one of our favorite compositions of 2018. Enjoy now in an appropriate glass, or store for greater complexity.
