The Time has Come!
Come join us at 4 Noses Brewery on Friday, October 4th for our new Mixed Culture Bottle release. We will be featuring 3 of our new beers: Jazz Lounge, Black Current, & Brisk Vine!
Listed below are descriptions of each individual beer -
Jazz Lounge - Blend of koelschip inoculated Witbier and mature foeder beer bottle conditioned with orange blossom honey. The combination of airborne microbes and pitched Wit yeast creates a delightful fermentative interplay of pineapple-forward Brettanomyces, balanced lactic acidity, and bright orange citrus and pepper phenols familiar in rustic Witbier.
Inherited Oak: Stone Fruit - Very similar in composition to our first release, Inherited Oak: Balaton Cherry. This blend consists of the remaining puncheon-aged Brett-Beer and a mixed-culture golden beer aged in a freshly emptied Zinfandel wine barrel. A major difference between this blend and previously released Inherited Oak: Balaton Cherry resides in process, separately refermenting our Brett-Beer on apricot puree and our mixed-culture golden beer on whole Balaton cherries before finally blending and allowing to coalesce for an additional three months prior to packaging.
Inherited Oak: Black Currant - A mixed-culture golden beer aged in a freshly emptied Zinfandel wine barrel and bottle conditioned with Cabernet Sauvignon grape juice. The choice of red grape juice for package refermentation is to reinforce the vinous qualities already present from the Zinfandel barrel’s imprint on the base beer and subsequent black currant maturation. These last two Inherited Oak releases will receive a fresh pitch of Brettanomyces Clausenii from Inland Island to promote healthy maturation in the bottle with less overt phenol development that is consistent with other strains of Brettanomyces.
We hope this got your pallet tingling and ready to try some crisp fresh mixed culture beers.
