Compression | Short's Brewing Company

ABV: 7.4%
IBU: 11
Style: Sour Ale

Description: Compression is an American Sour Ale made from a blend of four rare Short’s brews: an Oud Bruin with plums aged in red wine barrels, a Sour American Brown Ale aged in red wine barrels, a Belgian Sour Wheat Ale made with blackberries aged in Sauvignon Blanc barrels, and a Sour Stout aged in bourbon barrels. This beer has been brewed in collaboration with the band, Vulfpeck. Almost mahogany in color, this Sour Ale has a very complex nose with scents of tart, acidic fruit and a roast. Like the aroma, the flavors of this beer are intricate. Upon first sip, the characteristics of each blended beer are noticeable. A fruit sweetness is provided by the Oud Bruin and Belgian Sour Wheat Ale while oak and bourbon flavors have been imparted by the addition of barrel aged brews. The flavors of the Sour Stout shine in the finish which is dry and roasty with just a hint of bourbon.
