Garage Project Shinrin Yoku (750ml Bottle)
Literally ‘forest bathing’ in Japanese, Shinrin-yoku is the calming and rejuvenative act of walking slowly through a forest, allowing the senses to ‘bathe’ in the natural stimuli around you. Inspired by Shinrin-yoku, this mixed ferment sour has been barrel aged on Japanese ume plums, blended with another aged sour fermented using only sakura (wild cherry blossom), and then infused with the finest Japanese sencha green tea. Close your eyes, take a stroll and let delicate notes of plum, almond, new grass and blossom wash over your senses. Your own forest bath in a bottle.
Sour ale is a broad spectrum of wild ales, from the fruity and acetic Flanders Red Ales and Oud Bruins, to the experimental ales gaining popularity in the United States which use lactobacillus, brettanomyces and pediococcus in new and wild ways.
