The Barrel Shepherd The Afterlife - Syrah754590452236
REGION: Wollongong, NSW
SIZE: 750ml / ABV: 6.3%
A Belgian style beer rested on syrah pomace for nine months. The base beer was brewed in October 2020, later returned to barrel for maturation, then inoculated with naturally foraged house yeast and bacteria named 'Sunshine'. This tart and dry beer is a beautiful balance of the earthy tones from the Belgian saison and cherry-like aroma from its time on syrah skins, courtesy of Carto wines.
