Big Boss to release Pineapple Sour ale June 27th
Raleigh – Big Boss Brewing to release new sour pineapple ale this Thursday June 27th. The beer is available in kegs to customers all over North Carolina and a limited number of 100 bottles will be available at the taproom at a first come first serve basis.
“This Flanders style red ale spent over a year in our foedre before being blended with a younger batch to balance and round out the character. A mix of pineapple juice and purée is added at the very end of aging to bring a complex but robust tropical flavor to finish it off” said Big Boss cellarman John Pyburn who supervised the project.
The beer is called F2 Pineapple and is released as part of the “Strange Cargo“ series of oak aged ales. F2 Pineapple was created by combining matured oak foedre base sour ale with young amber ale into a 50/50 blend. The addition of fresh pineapple puree brings out a natural tiki bar inspired flavor to the brew.
