Late Bloomer Cherry Sour (7% abv) is described as follows:
This pale mixed-culture sour ale was aged in French Oak barrels for 6 months and refermented on top of freshly picked whole Lapin Cherries from Naramata. Juicy cherry aroma with white grape esters and some background wildness from our blend of Brettanomyces and the local microflora from the Okanagan to complement the fruit. Cherry skin, almonds and some oaky spice dominate while the beer’s medium acidity keeps a clean, tart finish.
Late Bloomer is available now in 500 ml corked and caged bottles at the Parallel 49 retail store while supplies last.
