Norwegian Fruit + Somerset Fruit + Pink!
We are very happy to announce the release of our fruit-forward sour, brewed and lovingly created in collaboration with Lindheim Ølkompani. Lindheim is a small fruit farm from Norway that has been passed down through the generations and is now also a brewery creating and releasing some absolutely incredible beers.
We love Lindheim’s use of local produce and terroir to create authentic, individual and amazing flavours which inspired this collaboration. Choked Up was brewed, aged in foudre fermenting on the fruit of our 2017 Redwood, moved back into steel where we added Lindhiem's Chokeberries and Apple juice, then further aged in barrel.
This is a carefully made slow beer, yes patience really is a virtue...
The beer itself has a bright red and pink hue to it and its flavour is reminiscent of tart cranberry juice and blackberry jam. This fruity beer amalgamates British and Norwegian terroir creating a tasting experience that's both memorable and unique.
Try it with rich gamey meets for an incredible food pairing!
