Halcyon: Gravity WellSour Ale • 9.0% • Halcyon Barrel House
Gravity Well is Halcyon Barrel House’s take on a Flanders Red ale, a style of sour beer traditionally brewed in Belgium. The tandem of the acidity playing off the subtle caramel malty sweetness keeps each in check.
History & Style
To create Gravity Well, Halcyon ferments its red ale in oak red wine barrels with a mix of different yeasts and bacteria, and aged it in those barrels for various lengths of time. As the barrels each takes on different flavours, the brewmaster custom-blends each batch of Gravity Well from this in-house supply.
Gravity Well pours a deep red. Its aroma is noticeably malty with a sweet tang, offering up stone fruit undertones and a hint of wine. Flavours are tart with cherry and wine, and slight alcohol warmth.
