Berry, wine, tart
Barrel aged sour gold with haskap • 6.5% ABV
Waking Dreams wanders the overlapping realm that lies between two alternate states of being: in this case, barrel-aged beer and berry wine. For Halcyon Barrel House, Waking Dreams is an exploration into the unknown.
This beer 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.
Halcyon Barrel House is a new branch on the Beau's family tree. New world brewing, patiently rooted in the old world traditions of mixed fermentation and aging in wood barrels, and bottle or keg conditioning.
