Crossover Blendery, Barbarian Lands, Wild Ale, 6%
Brewery: Crossover Blendery
Style: Wild Ale
Golden ale brewed with 60% malted barley and 40% raw wheat. Spontaneously fermented and aged in neutral french oak barrels for 14 months. The beer was moved onto Timperley Early (not forced) rhubarb from the 2021 harvest. The vegetable was from Styan Family Produce in Worcestershire. It remained on rhubarb for two weeks only to preserve freshness and avoid excessive acidity pick-up. We returned the beer to freshly emptied barrels which contained mount ida (our raspberry beer) for 4 months. Finally we blended with two further base golden ale components before bottling.
