Woody Cherry—tasting notes
Woody Cherry by Espiga is a fruity sour ale barrel-aged in red wine. Taste and aroma are a blend of the sweetness of cherries and the vinous and wood hints, ending in a sweet and acidic finish.
A sour ale, also known as wild ale is a category that englobes all type of ales that are brewed with other bacterias than traditional brewing yeasts—Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus or Acetobacter to name the most common. The composition of this microflora varies a lot even between short geographical distances—probably due to the evolutionary pressure of human brewing activity—making each local variation unique.
