Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek is up next in bottle for the Anderson, South Carolina based brewery.
The brewery’s base sour golden ale has been aged in Petite Syrah barrels before head brewer Keston Helfrich blended in a hefty chunk of art Montmorency cherries. By now the flavor of this future release should be taking shape.
We native fermented and aged our golden sour ale in Petite Syrah barrels before blending in a massive amount of tart Montmorency cherries to create a delightfully refreshing petite sour ale with a light body, tart acidity, bright pie cherry flavor , and a subtle barrel funk. This unique regional ale draws its acidity from a strain of lactobacillus isolated by SouthYeast labs from opuntia fruit in La France, South Carolina and a blend of locally captured native yeasts.
Carolina Bauernhaus Petite Kriek will be available in 750ml bottles at the brewery starting May 6th.
