A wort made with rye, oats, barley and wheat is boiled for three hours with aged hops and finished with a new English variety Olicana. Fermented with our house mixed culture in ex-bourbon and wine barrels, small numbers of barrels from multiple brews are selected to blend each batch.

This third blend of Running Beer is a blend of three brews produced between January and March 2017. They were fermented in oak barrels for eleven to thirteen months. The blend was then bottled and left to mature at ambient temperature for three months before release.

75cl bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Feb '20, in a desolate town centre during the famous Shrewsbury floods of 2020. Misty golden orange pour, patchy off white head. Aroma of lovely fresh citrussy wild lambic, continuing to taste, bright and floral with additional lemon hints. Great balanced Gloucester Gueuze, exceptional.

Sampled at Borefts Pre-Tasting 2019. Golden color, small white head. Aroma is sour, barnyard, horse blanket. Flavor is again sourish but less than I had expected, tart might be a better description, yellow color, less dry than I had expected. Quite good.
