BA Flanders Red with Strawberries.
Inspired by Flanders Reds of old, Doom Witch is a blended sour red ale combining 80% provision strength ‘young’ stock beer aged in steel, with around 20% ‘mature’ stock beer aged in Scottish whisky barrels (Longmorn & North British).
The combination of old and young beers has produced a complex sweet and sour flavour profile with a subtle oak character. This blended base was transferred onto the spent fruit (tayberries) and lees from our previous batch of Spectral Lore. We refermented this with a further 200g/l locally grown Scottish strawberries from 2023 harvest.
All fruit was sourced from farms located within 30 miles of the brewery.
