BeerRouge (3 x 330ml) Quercus (3 x 330ml)

SKU: lw_rouge_quercus


This mixed six-pack has three bottles each of Rouge and Quercus.

After ageing our Kirsche on cherries and currants, we added fresh Saison to the barrel to extract the last flavours from the fruit. Two years later we added a tea of hibiscus and a hint of buchu to accentuate the subtle wine and red-fruit notes of the base beer. This beer is filled with nuance and depth of flavour. It is difficult to tell where the flavours of the fruit stop and those of the teas start, keeping you coming back for more. Just how we like it.

Every once in a while there is a rare barrel that stands out amongst the rest. It is tart but not too sour, fruity but not too cloying, funky but balanced. This beer is from one of those barrels. This saison was aged for three years in a used white wine barrel with a mixed culture of yeasts and bacteria, including some harvested from a batch of naturally fermented wine I made at my father’s home in Hout Bay, Cape Town. Fewer than 400 bottles were made.
