London Beer Factory Skin Contact 5.5% (750ml bottle)
A blend of blonde mixed ferm saison re-fermented on 300g/L of fresh whole bunch chardonnay from Kent. We let the chardonnay carbonically macerate (breakdown and begin fermentation) by itself for 2 weeks before racking barrel aged tart saison on top of the fruit & juice. The combined microbes from both beer and fruit fermented the available sugar for 3 months before we moved the liquid off the fruit to be naturally carbonated in keg and bottle. The aroma is a bright blend of pineapple and green grape, while the flavour starts off crisp like fresh cider apples and fades into lingering vanilla and oak, reminiscent of oaky Australian Chardonnay.
