Amethyst Throne
Sour Red Ale aged in Port Barrels with Blackberries Added
We added 300 lbs of blackberries to this strong, sour red ale. As far as berries go, blackberries have a less-distinct more-complex flavor. They imbued a deep winey aroma, complimenting the vinous character created during the beer’s time in oversized port-barrels. The acidity is moderate, providing balance to the malt without disrupting drinkability. The fruit intensifies the red color of the base beer into a vivid ruby. The result is a libation suitable for a monarch to sip from a crystal goblet after a hard day of ruling.
