Inspired by Flanders Reds of old, Goat Witch is a blended sour red ale combining 80% provision strength ‘young’ stock beer aged in steel, with around 20% ‘mature’ stock beer aged in ex-Heaven Hill bourbon oak barrels. The combination of old and young beers has produced a complex sweet and sour flavour profile with a subtle oak character.
This blended base was transferred onto 220g/l of 2022 harvest of Scottish Tayberries, sourced from farms located within 40 miles of the brewery. Tayberries are a cross between raspberries and blackberries. Expect complex raspberry aroma to dominate, with blackberry-forward characteristics on the palate.
