Crossover Honey Isle 2022
Process: A blend of 20 month & 30 month old golden ales brewed with malted barley and raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels. We refermented the beer on Wojtek honeyberries from Dundee, Scotland. The beer was on fruit for 2 months with regular punch-downs during the initial stages of fermentation. It was then blended back with further barrel components before bottling.
Conditioning: Packaged with a small amount of priming sugar for natural carbonation in the bottle. We do not add yeast at this point, or at any point in the process. Bottles laid to rest on side and conditioned until release.
Ingredients: Malted barley, raw wheat, aged hops (whole leaf fuggle, saaz, hersbrucker & strisselspalt), wojtek honeyberries, water.
