Artist Series release no. 12 features work from Adelaide based painter, BZRK•ONE (aka Jake Fuss) and is an acute collision of crafts – something this grass-roots initiative continues to deliver.

The beer, a cherry juice infused wheat ale, spent the last 10 months on ex-chardonnay casks; taking up the oak (and its previous contents) with measured enthusiasm. On sampling the de-racked liquid, we caught hints of Brettanomyces, so left it in the tank to mellow. Coz when Brett rocks up, you let him party till he’s ready to leave.

The finished beer pours maroon with a cushion of foam. Expect aromas of dried cherries and plum, with flickers of farmhouse funk. On the palate, more cherry, spritzy carb, and a lick of buttery oak.

Malt: Pale Malt, Wheat Malt. Hops: Simcoe, Perle. Extras: Cherry Juice
