Fortuna’s other cask room beer was inspired by the Belgian oudekriek style; for the final months of storage, we combine it with the juice of Polish cherries. Dry and decidedly cherry-like, with hints of vanilla and wine. The beer’s acidity is complemented by a hint of a horse blanket and a taste of cherry pits. We used a mixed culture of Lochristi Brettanomyces Blend yeast for the re-fermentation in wooden barrels and the subsequent fermentation of cherry juice.

The barrel: Sourced from the French vineyard Château Kirwan (AOC Margaux), used for 3 vintages of wine with a predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon varietal.

The yeast: Bay Lochristi Brettanomyces Blend Extract
