Halcyon Shifting Sands: BlueberryOrganic barrel aged sour gold with blueberries • 7.3 % • Halcyon Barrel House
This is the first time brewing a Blueberry rendition of Shifting Sands sour gold with fruit. The sour golden ale base was mixed with organic blueberries and aged for 7 months in red and white wine barrels.
History & Style
Shifting Sands is an organic sour golden ale that is in essence, the canvas for each edition of this beer. Each version of Shifting Sands features a different treatment of varieties of fruit, re-fermented and aged in barrels or foeders. The idea behind this project is to play with various fruit re-fermentation in a semi-constant environment, creating each time a balanced beer that both showcases the fruit used, and respects the base sour gold, Shifting Sands.
Shifting Sands Blueberry is tart, tasty and enjoyably effervescent. True to its inspiration it delivers delicious blueberry flavour upfront that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
