Fonta Flora - Float The Stars 7.2% - 750ml - USA

40.00

Traditional Flanders-inspired red ale brewed in 2017. With primary fermentation atop second use cherries with a mixed house culture
Then transferred into third use bourbon barrels with Defiant Whisky soaked oak spirals
. It was then blended with a fresh brown ale to help cut the acidity and provide a nice caramel body to the beer. Then transferred to a fruit receiving tank with loads of hand roasted local figs. After fermentation on the figs, this blend went back into wine barrels for further maturation. After months of additional aging, it was removed from barrels and sent into the bottling tank and ultimately conditioned naturally in the bottle and keg.

As this beer is released, it represents two years from the inception of the brew. Wildly complex and unique, Float the Stars is a creation we are incredibly proud of and not at all certain we could ever emulate again.
