Burning Sky - Coolship Release No.1
Spontaneously-fermented barrel-aged sour beer with a nod to classic lambic producers in Belgium.
Brewers' notes: "... our first ever coolship beer – inoculated over night with micro flora specific to our locale, then spontaneously fermented and barrel aged. To say that we are happy with this beer would be an understatement. It represents the culmination of our wildest dreams and aspirations. A beer made with more than a passing nod to the great lambic producers of Brussels and Pajottonland. A beer we have dreamt of. Brewed early 2017, we followed a turbid mash schedule with malted barley, wheat and un-malted heritage grains. An extended boil with aged hops followed, before transferring to the coolship overnight. This then went to barrels the following day, where it stayed until bottling on 30th July. This is a mono blend, i.e. not a blend of different vintages. The beer is being released with a gentle carbonation level (2 volumes of CO2), we expect this to build as the beer ages. Already the beer is showing great complexity, with a pleasing acidic, slight cider/ natural wine notes and a dry finish. As with all our special releases, it can be drunk now and/ or cellared."
