Sunlight of Bygone Days – 9.1% ABV/500 mL Bottle
Tripel Brewed with Apple Cider, Aged in Chardonnay Barrels
Inspired by Belgium, Quebec, and Autumn. We waited longer than originally planned for this batch to mature. It started as a Belgian-style tripel with boiled-down apple cider replacing the classic white sugar addition. From there we aged it in Chardonnay barrels with Brettanomyces for 16 months. It emerged leathery, earthy, and appley. Still with some sweetness even after all of this time. It shares much in common with our barrel-aged sour beer… other than the sourness.
