Mixed FermentationSour w/Fruit
Small Pony Barrel Works was established in 2017. They are Canada’s first (and probably only) all barrel-aged sour beer brewery. The beers are aged in ex-Napa Valley wine barrels for between 9 months and over 2 years. Small Pony has developed a reputation for making an array of both complex, and refreshing sour beers that are great to drink fresh, but also to properly cellar.
Pouring a hazy, bright pinkish red and exploding with zingy aromas of cherries, marzipan, vanilla, and grapefruit pith. The palate is light, and dry and deeply steeped in ripe cherry flavours – but it wouldn’t be a Small Pony beer if it wasn’t incredibly sour as well!
A Golden Sour Beer Aged in Oak Barrels With Montmorency Cherries. Gold medal winner in its category in the Canadian Brewing Awards for both 2018, and 2019.
As standard procedure for SPBW, a blend of golden sour beers are left to mature in various oak barrels. Some develop acidity, some new flavours, and some funky flavours. They are then sorted to create a balanced blend, and in this case are then re-fermented on cherries to further develop flavour.
