English Strong Ale w/ Cherries
A robust malt bill lays the foundation for the complex strong ale. We say “English Strong Ale” but we made it our own. A blend of Canadian and German malt, some oats for body and just a whisper of smoked malt to accentuate the cherries. English and American hops (Bramling Cross and Crystal) bring woody and earthy notes. Fermented with an English yeast strain then conditioned on cherry puree.
The intention was to boost and balance the natural malt and dark fruit esters of this English style. Conditioned on sweet and tart cherries, Velveteen gives flavours of dried mulberry, freshly toasted granola and bright red fruit.
Rich and malty yet bright and refreshing. Comforting. Let this beer warm up to let the flavours shine.
