CYGNUS: Cherry (Blend A)

CYGNUS is a blend of three years of traditional, Lambic-inspired, coolship spontaneous ale, that follows the Méthode Traditionnelle guidelines. The blended base beer was refermented with two different kinds of whole tart cherries, Montmorency and Balaton, including the cherry pits which adds to the classic complexity and flavor associated with Kriek.

After several months of aging the beer on cherries in oak barrels, the beer was removed and stored. Then more base beer was added to the cherries, extracting more color and a milder nuanced flavor. The first-use and second-use beers were then blended together to age further.

Finally, the strong cherry beer was blended down to final fruit level for bottling with hand-selected 1-year, 2-year, and three-year beer from barrels. Two blends were created, each with their own unique character and final fruit level, due to this blending process.
