Halcyon Shifting Sands: Blueberry

Organic 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.
