In late July of 2020, we received a massive harvest of yellow New Jersey grown Shiro plums from one of our farm friends.
We selected a single oak barrel of young spontaneous beer to blend at a 1:1 ratio for refermentation.
After squishing the overripe fruit by hand, the beer was allowed to rest on the fruit and absorb the flavors of the plum juice, skins and pits.
After refermentation the blend rested on the fruit for an additional 12 months prior to bottling.
After bottle conditioning for an additional 16 months, Shiro Plum | 2020 Harvest has an average age of 37 months.
Shiro Plum | 2020 Harvest pours a hazy pale blonde with lively carbonation that drives a sturdy white foam. Aromatics of plum skin and a light salinity, a balancing honeysuckle vanilla with notes of rainier cherries.
