We have 7 large oak barrels in totalt. 6 of them holds around 3500 liters and number 7 holds 6000 liters.
We filled them all with fresh wort in 2017 and up until recently we’ve only used beer from the 6 ”small” ones to make wild blends.
No.7, the large one, was also filled in the summer of 2017 and we’ve been keeping an extra eye on this one. We pitched the beer with both our brett- and bacteria culture and the beer has developed a lot over the 4+ years it has spent in the barrel – from a fresh, fruity and funky beer to a more deep and complex drink.
Early on we realized that this beer could be our first ever ”single barrel wild ale” and this winter we decided to make it a reality.
The bottles were packaged in mid-November and will be released in Systembolagets exclusive assortment next Friday, February 4th. The limited amount of bottles will be available in a couple of stores but also for online order.
We’re really proud of this one and would love to hear what you think of it!
