GATHERING & HINT BOTTLE SET - Gathering Tart Cherries / Gathering Blueberries / Hint of Tart Cherry / Hint of Blueberry
2 500ml GATHERING BEERS & 2 500ml HINT BEERS:
GATHERING BLUEBERRIES & GATHERING TART CHERRIES:
Gathering represents fresh, whole, local fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. These two additions to the Gathering series feature tart cherries from Wright's Farm in Gardiner, New York & blueberries from Pastore Orchards in Hammonton, New Jersey. These fruits underwent a carbonic maceration and spontaneous autofermentation before blending and secondary fermentation with some of our finest barrels of aged sour beer.
Gathering Tart Cherries is a stunner—fruit-forward fun complemented by a barrel blend that combines our golden sour base with mature oak, complex spon, and aged hops. The use of the whole fruit (stems & pits included!) shines through and gives us rounded notes of ripe cherry with grounding hints of orchard earth and baking spice. And we're loving the acidity—highly complex yet delightfully balanced in a way that grants this sour a crushable status.
Gathering Blueberries is bursting with juicy, berry brightness. Blueberry pie filling dominates the nose, but the body is light and refreshing with a gentle acidity.
Both bottles are 6% ABV.
HINT OF BLUEBERRY & HINT OF TART CHERRY:
Hint is our traditional unboiled, mixed culture berliner weisse transformed through a second steeping on local, peak of summer fruit. The same whole tart cherries and blueberries used to flavor their respective Gathering releases—our most recent blended barrel-aged sours—see a second life. The result is two refreshingly tart Berliners with a hint of fresh fruit flavor and oak. A crushable 3.4% must-have companion with the purchase of any Gathering!
Both bottles are 3.4% ABV.
