Sour Ale | 9.0% alc./vol.
Gravity Well is Halcyon Barrel House's take on a Flanders Red ale, a style of sour beer traditionally brewed in Belgium. The tandem of the acidity playing off the subtle caramel malty sweetness keeps each in check.
To create Gravity Well, Halcyon ferments its red ale in oak red wine barrels with a mix of different yeasts and bacteria, and aged it in those barrels for various lengths of time. As the barrels each takes on different flavours, the brewmaster custom-blends each batch of Gravity Well from this in-house supply.
Gravity Well pours a deep red. Its aroma is noticeably malty with a sweet tang, offering up stone fruit undertones and a hint of wine. Flavours are tart with cherry and wine, and slight alcohol warmth. .
