Our friends at Oliver Winery have had a hand in our Sour Ale program since the beginning. The first oak barrels acquired by Upland were purchased from Oliver. We have released our Terrior Series for a few years now. The Chambourcin grape is grown in Indiana by wine makers for dry reds and rose’. We have used Chambourcin in our Oak and Rose’ and Oak Timbre, which has only used Basis in the blending process. With the nice tannins that come from the skins of the Chambourcin grape we thought it would pair well with our flanders red style base beer.
Devined pours a deep red to ruby in color and has aromas of red wine, dried fruit, cherry and fig. The flavor is malty with red wine, lemon, cherry, dark fruit with a medium bodied tart finish.
