Cherry BA Flanders Red with Scottish Honeyberries
We picked two standout barrels of our aged Flanders Red for this beer. These had been aging in whisky casks which had previously held the beer-soaked whole cherries producing our beloved Unholy Mountain kriek.
We blended these barrels with a smaller portion of beer brewed and aged at the Hanging Bat in Edinburgh, which were aged in a quarter casks. The oxidative nature of aging in small barrels lent a rounded acidity when blended with the cherry barrels. We then refermented this blend on 200g/l of whole Scottish honeyberries for two months. 780 bottles only.
