Calvados & Apple
Barrel Aged Apple Sour
Our single fruit sour series is a range of beers that we brew to each time showcase a specific fruit, to really let it shine. Because, what does a fruit in a beer really taste like? For this iteration we took our puckering sour and then added so much apple. Apple! Now, we’ve had the beer age in Calvados barrels to reach that deep rich juicy cider flavor. Sweet n’ sour!
We’ve done a lot of sour beer here at Dugges. We’ve done so many taste variants with fruit and spices that we’ve lost count. And, we’ve played around with malt bills, yeasts, levels of alcohol and acidity to the point that we almost though we’d tried everything. One thing we hadn’t done though, weirdly enough, was to focus on one single fruit; to methodically go through fruit by fruit to see how they work and would taste in a sour beer. So, that’s how this single fruit series started. And, now we wanted to spice things up a bit. To our help we had som flavory Calvados barrels which we let the beer age in to enhance those juicy flavors of apples.
