Trillium - Black Currant Soak
Type : Sour / American Wild Ale
Untappd score: 4,24
Soak: our line of sour wheat ales, aged in oak, featuring a variety of
single fruit additions. We place a base brew crafted with 60% wheat
grist in 600L oak puncheons for 3 months with fermentation duties shared
gracefully between lactobacillus and our Native New England mixed
culture. Loosely inspired by the cold-maceration process used in
winemaking, we blend fruit directly into the barrels to “soak” for
enhanced extraction of unique colors, aromatics, and flavors.
Delightfully acidic, but not funky, our Soak series is an approachable
sequence of wild offerings that we are proud to share.
Black Currants bring a slightly hazy ruby red hue and a pleasantly tart and deep profile of dark mixed berry compote, underpinned by a light tannic structure. Black Currant Soak is dry with undertones of oak and wheat accentuated by an effervescent carbonation for a crisp, quenching finish.
