Track 9′s origins trace back to a few barrels of Cuvee de Tomme that didn’t mature in time for the 2011 release. We held these back to let them age a while longer and later opted to add currants to the mix to see what would happen.

Left to nature’s devices, the currants married into the raisin and cherry already present in the beer and created a full-bodied fruit intensity we hadn’t quite expected. Liking what we tasted, we decided to bump the melange with an addition of Brettanomyces for a little extra oomph. The results are a unique blend that delivers a great combination of plummy fruits, round malts and just enough funk to remind you Brett’s in the house and doing her thing.

_angst_ (4553) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle bought through Drikkeriget. Pours hazy reddish brown with a very small offwhite head that doesn’t leave muche trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and acetic with sourdough bread, lemon juice, cherries, currants, hay, dry soil, vinegar, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Taste is sour and fruity. mouthfeel is dry, tart, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with sour cherries, currants, hay, minerals, barnyard, vinegar and lemon zest. Cool version! I feel I like the regular without the currant astringency better.

Copious body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy fruit sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration.
