A new one from our fav Manchester brewery.
Ripple is a blend of two barrels from August and December 2021, fermented with saison yeast, lactobacillus and brettanomyces before ageing for two months on carbonically macerated British Raspberries.
Beautifully fresh raspberry aroma mingles with subtle fruity funk and the woody vanilla notes of oak. Raspberry jelly cubes on the palate and quenching acidity work in harmony as the tannic, vinous qualities of the base beer shine through.
Place: Manchester, UK
Balance is the project of James and Will, head brewers/barrel managers from Manchester craft beer giants Track and Squawk. Balance is a wild fermentation focused brewery. They're fairly new to the scene but making huge waves already.
