Real cherry flavour and a big hit of juicy American hops combine with a balanced malt body in this super drinkable hazy red ale.
Vermont IPA yeast is perfect for a hazy, hoppy beer. It adds fruitiness to complement the big juicy American hop character and hangs around in the beer more so than most yeast strains adding body to the flavour and haze to the appearance.
CaraRed, Crystal and Carafa combine to create a ruby red beer with great caramel flavours to offset, but not overpower the cherry and citrus fruitiness. Oat Malt is also used to round out the body and increase the general haziness!
The big American hop flavour comes from Citra and Amarillo. An early dry hop addition (day 1) helps biotransformation of the hop oils to really bring out the fruity flavours, and a second dry hop at the end of primary ferment acts as insurance that Cattleyard’s get the hazy, hoppy, juicy result Cattleyard are after!
To top this beer off, and really make it stand out from the crowd, real cherry puree is added into the fermenter. It’s fruitier, more red, more hazy and more delicious as a result. Enjoy!
