The seemingly unstoppable Wilson Brewery have launched yet another mouth-watering fruited ale into 2019 in the shape of their hotly-anticipated Scurvy Nights Sour Cherry Dark Ale.
Initially brewed as a clean malt-driven dark ale, the unfermented wort was spiked with lactobacillus, yielding a tonne of tart and a touch of funk. Post fermentation, the beer was finished off with a healthy dose of fresh cherries, grown in the brewery’s hometown of Albany.
Refreshingly tart and pleasingly robust, Scurvy Nights has plenty to offer across the sweet and sour tasting spectrum, with plenty of funk to boot. Despite the addition of fruit, it’s unlikely to bring you back from the throes of scurvy, however, and is best consumed for leisure only.
