Minuit au Cerisier is the first of two beers made for our second anniversary. After aging this dark strong ale in red wine barrels for over a year, we refermented it on 200 grams per liter of Norfolk County whole Montmorency sour cherries.
The resulting beer pours with a beautiful dark ruby-red glow. The cherries immediately greet you in the aroma and as the initial cherry flavour fades, we get notes of almond, plum, and an oaky vanilla finish.
Although the fruit-forward flavour and mild carbonation give an impression of sweetness, it finishes quite dry.
This beer is bottle conditioned and we expect it to age well for months or even a couple of years.
