The Barrel & Bramble is a Lambic style sour cider for which 6 barrels of cider were each fermented and soured slightly differently. This cider spent some time in the country and was left to ride in barrels outside of the barn for another 6 months, tugging the horse and leather notes from the ferment, while the acids married and esterified. All were blended together and then we added the organic black currant juice and let it all steep for 2 months to meld together, and then conditioned to a light sparkle. Some sediment remains from the process. Fermented with three strains of Brettanomyces yeast, then soured with Pediococcus and Lactobacillus and gently oaked.

Sweet Bottle Slightly carbonated

I'm generally not a fan of sours, but this one is decent
