Belgian-style sour ale aged in oak barrels with basil, Meyer lemon zest, and Szechuan peppercorn ‘Everything is Nothing With a Twist’, or just ‘Twist’ for short, is a special collaboration blend we did with our good friend Eric Salazar. Doing a blend with someone is a great way for us to gain knowledge from some of the masters of this industry, get an outside perspective on our beer, and have a good time with friends. For this blend we hand picked a few barrels of our one year old lambic-inspired base beer and then added basil, Meyer lemon zest, and Szechuan peppercorn. All three ingredients are in perfect balance. It starts with a mildly herbaceous nose from the basil, crisp lemony flavors follow combining beautifully with the acidity of the beer. The peppercorn comes through in the finish and rounds out this funky and wild ride.
