While this is the “table version” of our Farmhouse ale “Surette”, the process is a blend of brewing techniques from farmhouse breweries which use to span from Northern Germany to Northern France. Drawing inspiration from Berliner-weisse, Gose, Farmhouse Wit and Saison, Petite Sour is a true farmhouse beer. For this rendition I used a mixed culture of lacto and Brett to ferment a portion of the beer giving a cleaner acidity compared to the previous spontaneous batch. This batch of Petite Sour was again fermented and aged in our oak foeder as a blend of two beers. I’ll continue to tweak the recipe and process until this beer gets to…well, wherever our travels lead us.
