Holgate Sour Brett Ale 500ml
Holgate Brewhouse small-batch Sour Brett Ale is barrel-aged and soured. Perfect for the beer curious and connoisseur alike. This A purely yeast driven beer, after kettle souring and long Brettanomyces fermentation in the brewery, our Sour Brett has been aged in ex-Wild Red Ale barrels so it has developed a great wood character which compliments the classic Brett funk.
The Sour Brett Ale is a Brettanomyces fermented blonde ale from Holgate Brewhouse. The Sour Brett has a zesty acidity balanced by sweet summer fruits – think peaches, apricots and mango with a hint of forest fruits – that border on confectionary in their intensity. The simple malt bill has created a hazy, burnished gold beer that is redolent of lazy, late-summer afternoons. The palate is unmistakeably Brett with touches of rustic funk underneath a bracing lactic acidity. The sweet fruits are in play too, the whole being reminiscent of childhood sour candies, lemon sherbet and green gooseberries. The finish is lip-smackingly dry. Sour Brett Ale is perfect on its own but also pairs very well with strong cheeses and antipasto.
