Introducing Soak: our new line of sour wheat ales, aged in oak, featuring a variety of single fruit additions. We ferment the base beer with 60% wheat in large oak foeders for several months. Fermentation duties are shared gracefully between our house lactobacillus strain and our Native New England mixed culture. Loosely inspired by the cold-maceration process used in winemaking, we blend fruit directly into the foeders to “soak” for a deep extraction of unique colors, aromatics, and flavors and a refermentation.
Blackberry Soak pours deep garnet red with a nose of fresh-picked bramble fruits. The blackberries used in barrels stand out on the palate, accompanied by notes of cranberry and slight subtle floral tartness. A refreshingly light mouthfeel and a touch of effervescence tie this elegant sour together.
