Ale Fermented With Cherries
Our latest is with Montmorency and Balaton cherries!
We added equal parts of each variety to Grisette-style beer at a ratio of about 1.25 pounds per gallon.
Our goal was to make a very drinkable beer, low in acidity, with present but not overwhelming fruit character.
With an emphasis on balance and drinkability, we primary-fermented the Grisette in stainless steel for a few weeks, then added the cherries for secondary fermentation in stainless as well.
Our intent is for our fruited-Grisettes to be enjoyed fresh, while the fruit character is still vibrant and the fermentation character is "clean".
Cherry Grisette is 5.3% abv. It's unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% naturally conditioned.
