Notes: Wood-Aged Sour Blonde with Riesling Grapes: A wood-aged sour beer that is co-fermented with Oregon-grown Riesling juice. This is our first foray into the exciting and inchoate world of oenobeers or grape ales-- beers that use a large portion of grape juice in them to impart wine-like characteristics. Golden Cluster was blended from two beers in our wood cellar. the majority of the blend is a lambic-inspired beer brewed in September 2018, made with aged hops and fermented entirely in wood casks with naturally occurring bacteria and yeast. This was mixed with a small portion of a similar beer from July 2018 which was more acidic. Finally, the blend was re-fermented with 35% fresh-pressed Riesling juice from the Willamette Valley. We hope you enjoy the interplay of vinous flavors and sparkling acidity in this celebratory release!
