Alban Farmhouse Red

Inspired by the traditional Red and Brown Farmhouse Ales of theFlanders region of Belgium, this beer underwent a mixed culturefermentation and spent fourteen months aging in French Oak red winebarrels before being bottled. The resulting aged beer, blended with freshbeer of the same recipe at bottling, is crisp and tart with a light body,moderate carbonation, and complex notes of dark fruit, vinous oak andhints of sherry. This beer will continue to pleasantly age and evolve inthe bottle when stored at proper cellar temperatures.

This special release was crafted in collaboration with John Alban, ofAlban Vineyards, who has been a longtime friend of Blackberry Farmand who graciously provided the oak barrels for the project. The FrenchOak barrels, which previously held Grenache and Syrah from AlbanVineyards, were used to age our Flanders-inspired red ale for fourteenmonths before bottling.
