Little Earth Project, Blackcurrant & Rye Sour, Fruited Sour, 5.2%
Brewery: Little Earth Project
Style: Fruited Sour
Codename: Ryebena. In 2019 Little Earth Project brewed a rye-heavy wort which they put into an oak butt to ferment with our own mixed culture. After several months, it finished fermentation with a good amount of sugar remaining. This sweet, slightly spicy, sour beer needed something special added that would contrast the sweetness. Similar to their Blueberry Sour, they decided to experiment with Blackcurrant puree to bring big, mouth puckeringly dry tannins & a bit of bitterness to balance it out.
