GUEST BEER // SIREN WINE BARREL AGED UNDERCURRENT

Posted by Mark in Guest Beer Reviews

In this section of the website you will find concise reviews of some of our interesting guest beers.

SIREN WINE BARREL AGED UNDERCURRENT – Bottle (5.1%)

OVERVIEW Siren’s flagship pale ale aged in chardonnay barrels with brett (wild yeast).

APPEARANCE A hazy orange with a thin white head.

AROMA Smells a lot like of a Belgian Lambic beer. Lemon, grape and apple.

TASTE A lot of tropical notes from the hops married with grapes from the chardonnay and a tart sour sherbet taste from the yeast.

VERDICT A really complex and refreshing beer and one of the best ones we’ve tasted this year.
