Garage Project Single Fruit Series - Cherry (750ml Bottle)
WHAT IS IT?
Single Fruit - Cherry. The first of our Harvest Series, a blend of oak barrel aged sour beer, infused with Montmorency cherries from Springbank Orchard, just outside Oamaru.
The finished beer is a delightful effervescent sunset pink, bursting with bright tart cherry fruit and a hint of almond, both moreish and immensely refreshing.

Lambic Style - Fruit
Lambics are wheat beers made with stale hops and fermented with wild yeasts and other microorganisms, traditionally only on the Senne Valley in and around Brussels. The most traditional of the fruit lambics are kriek (cherry) and framboise (raspberry). In modern times, peaches (peche), blackcurrants (cassis), grapes, as well as more exotic fruits are used. Traditional lambics are commonly denoted by the term "oud", which is a reference to "old-style", and these are the most sour. More commonly, though, lambics are sweetened to cut the intense acidity. Serve with sharp cheeses or pickled dishes, or use in the preparation of mussels.
