Edge Brewing Project
Edge / NOMA - Barrel Aged Cherry & Lemon Myrtle Ale
Style: Fruit Beer
Format: 330ml Bottle
With a very fine, soft carbonation, akin to a sahti or unblended lambic, and a lightly tart mouthfeel, this brew is stunningly refreshing. We start off with pale malts and wheat, which we sour kettle, then infuse on freshly picked cherries from the yarra valley. This is where the beer picks up its distinctive colour, and slight fruitiness. We pick the cherries in Nov, at the start of the season, when they are green/light red and tart, before they have matured to a deep red and are highly sweet. The batch is then transferred into Bendigo Shiraz oak, and barrel aged for 3 months, further gaining subtle complexity. Finally, the beer is filtered through a bed of lemon myrtle leaves, giving a fresh burst in aroma, before undergoing its third fermentation in bottle conditioning.
All brewed and packaged by hand, this ale was produced by Edge Brewing Project exclusively for the Sydney pop-up restaurant of Noma (one of the best restaurants in the World) .
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Real beauty, tart from the cherries with a little sweetness, spice from the lemon myrtle and barrel aging process.
