Plum, lactobacillus, midnight wheat…who says romance is dead?

Cue the xylophones - True Romance is here! Our small batch series is all about experimentation so naturally we are trying something a little new with this one. We brewed this sour beer with midnight wheat (in addition to pilsner and wheat) which provides a darker color and an ever-so-slight roasted note. During fermentation we added loads of plum puree (100g per litre) which produces a rich sienna colour and adds some nice tart complexity. We get intense floral and fruity aromas, a velvety mouth feel and a deep dark fruit punch. It's a wild ride!

Fall in love fast, cause this sour will only be around for a short time
