Flemish-Style Sour Red Ale

Helena is modeled after a traditional Flanders sour red ale. In the beer, aromas of apple and pear combine with a hint of caramel. After about a month of fermentation on our house yeast in stainless steel, we transfer Helena to an oak foudre—basically a giant wine barrel. In that foudre we add Lactobacillus and Pediococcus, lending the beer its clean, tart profile. Enjoy!
