Hachet Sour, 6.0%
Hatchet Sour, 6.0%
The latest release in our Heritage Sour Series, Hatchet Sour is a 6.0% cherry and cherry wood saison.
This tart Saison has been bolstered with Rye and Munich malts to add a peppery-spiced complexity. The generous addition of sweet cherry into the fermenter gives the Saison a jammy sweetness which is balanced with the tannic and subtle vanilla notes from the cherry wood chips.
The cherry tree myth is the most well-known and longest enduring legend about George Washington. In the original story, when Washington was 6 years old he received a hatchet as a gift and damaged his father’s cherry tree. When his father discovered what he had done, he became angry and confronted him. Young George bravely said, “I cannot tell a lie…I did cut it with my hatchet.” Washington’s father embraced him and rejoiced that his son’s honesty was worth more than a thousand trees. However true this story really is, this Hatchet Sour is honest using real sweet cherries and aged on cherry wood, albeit not quite 1,000 trees.
Hatchet Sour is available in 330ml can and keg from next Monday 2nd March and will be pouring exclusively at our Taproom from this Friday 28th February.
