Fulton Culture Project Series No. One. Red Ale Aged in Wine Barrels. Ale aged in Wine Barrels with Facto, Pedio and Brett.
ABV: 6.7%. IBU: 7. PH: 3.5. Packaged: December 2016. (when I bought it.) Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Spelt, Carared, Red Fife, Simpsons DRC. Hops: Amarillo. Fermentation: Primary fermentation in stainless steel with Saccaromyces. Continued fermentation in oak for 12 months with Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Brettanomyces.

Clear, bright amber coloration, slim white head.

In the nose: aw, funky! Horse blanket, litterbox. Vinegar. Very ripe and pungent.

In the mouth: Major pucker. Good and tart, fresh, funky, fruity, then dry. Lean bodied, and utterly quenching. Tart and tasty. Big fruit, cherries and berries, pleasant tartness. Very easy, very mellow, very nice. Not too intense, and who really has to have all that, anyway? Just delicious. Yum, um, um.This is the start of what can only get better.
