Solera Project: Base (2016) (American Wild Ale 28) - Tasting
The base beer was originally brewed in 2013 as a Belgian Blonde Ale. We then aged the beer in a freshly emptied 65 Gallon Chardonnay barrel for 1 year. We inoculated the barrel with some bugs from Wyeast and some dregs from some of our favorite Russian River sour beers. In 2016 (3 years after entering the barrel) we bottled up just the base beer without any fruit. 7 years later I decided to see how this is developing in the bottle.

Dunkles Bock (2nd Luft) (Dunkles Bock 6C) - Tasting
