The Rare Barrel Ensorcelled – 3/28/15 Bottle Release
(Berkley,CA) – Ensorcelled, our dark sour aged in oak barrels with raspberries, is back! Decadent, rich, and jammy, Ensorcelled will remind you of a chocolate raspberry tart dessert.
Ensorcelled shares a special piece of history with us. Last year, Ensorcelled took home a Gold Medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup in the American-Style Sour Ale category. However, prior to wining that prestigious award, we named this beer Ensorcelled (which means “Enchanted”), because Jay, our blender and brewer, was enchanted by this beer throughout the barrel aging process. As Jay would taste through our first batches of our young sour beers, he kept going back to Ensorcelled and expressing how this was one of our best sours in the barrel cellar. After months of tasting through our barrels, and months of consistently coming back to Ensorcelled, Jay and the team became enchanted with this sour dark sour with raspberries. For us, this World Beer Cup award is special, because it validated our blender’s foresight and ability to taste barrels-in-progress and predict where they will go. We hope that you and your friends enjoy a piece of this enchantment when you share your bottle of Ensorcelled.
Ensorcelled bottles will be available in the Tasting Room this Saturday at 2PM. $30/750mL bottle, limit will be updated here on Wednesday afternoon. Enjoy!
