FUNK in the TRUNK
Barrel-Aged Sour Celebration
Saturday, December 3
We’re rolling out the barrels… barrel-aged sours, that is! Brown Truck is thrilled for our first “Funk in the Trunk,” a special sour release day! For Funk in the Trunk, we’re opening up our cellar to tap five different special brews: Fruition, a Pinotage barrel-aged imperial Sour Ale, and four small-batch variants of Wild Woods, our oak-aged mixed-culture Wild Ale. We’ll also be re-releasing a limited number of Fruition bottles and gift boxes from our reserve while supplies last.
Fruition Sour Ale
Five-plus years ago, our brewers stashed away a batch of our award-winning No. 4 Saison in Rickety Bridge Pinotage French oak barrels with a very special wild yeast strain. Through years of barrel aging, our Saison reacted to the wild yeast and oak to evolve into a unique and complex Imperial Sour Ale.
Fruition pours a dark golden hue with a lingering porcelain foam. Fruity and funky Lambic-style aromas on the nose set the stage for a medium-bodied mouthfeel and an effervescent carbonation. The beer unveils itself slowly through layers of flavor including honey, pear, hay, and farmhouse funk. Rickety Bridge's Pinotage barrels introduce notes of red wine tannins, vanilla, and a dry woody spice. Fruition finishes dry with balanced acidity and lingering fruitiness.
The name Fruition comes from the massive amount of time, labor, and love used to create this beer. At 9.4% ABV, Fruition is the perfect brew for celebrations and special occasions. Patience is a virtue.
Available on draft and in 500ml bottles for a limited time.
