Waking Dreams | Halcyon Barrel House
Style: Sour - Ale
Description: Last fall we selected four barrels from our stock of young, lightly tart gold beer. which had been aged for three months. To each barrel we added a significant quantity of locally grown organic haskap, a small, dark blue berry. The barrels underwent a secondary fermentation and aging period over the winter, then were blended together for packaging and release this spring. Waking Dreams pours a deep cranberry colour, with light berry-pink foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of berries and wine, with a touch of fruit skins. The flavour is tart, with lots of juicy, berry wine character. Plenty of tannins round out the body. The beer finishes dry, with a pleasant, lingering taste of fruit skins.
