Unique Aspect

For this project we decided to bring our shared ethos of wild yeast and barrel aging together, culminating in a transcontinental sour Saison. With 6 months in barrel and 6 months in bottle, the wild yeasts from Westcombe Somerset, & Missouri USA have run riot building complexity and flavour development.
The wild yeasts of Missouri, wrangled by Cory and Side Project, were flown to us to mingle with the Somerset beasties for a transcontinental co-fermented, barrel aged sour Saison. Brewed without hops we have incorporated the colour red with the additions of pomegranate and rose petals. A funky mixture of microbes in burgundy wine barrels lends a tart acidity and farmhouse slant while the fragrant rose and pomegranate play with the woody tannins in Rosa Rouge.

Food Pairings

Finding a dish to balance the cutting power of brisk acidity and bold tannins with the delicate rose petal and pomegranate is the key here. Heavier salads with chicken and thick dressings will work perfectly, even more so with some walnuts and pomegranates. Alternatively a Persian (rose and pomegranate inspired) khoresh stew is based on the flavours of tomato, saffron and pomegranate juice - throw in some dates and lamb for the full effect.
