Fyne Ales — Nàdar Rhubarb
Mixed Fermentation with Rhubarb
Sharp rhubarb tartness mellows into stone-fruit flavours before gentle barnyard funk and a balanced, dry finish.
The first release in our new Nàdar series of spontaneously fermented beers finished with a variety of additions showcases the sweet and sour fruit character of Scottish rhubarb in a complex, aged and blended wild ale.
Combining vintages of beers fermented only using the native Glen Fyne mircroflora and aged for a minimum of one year in oak barrels, Nàdar Rhubarb was finished on the Scottish fruit for a further six months before bottling, augmenting the base beer’s gentle acidity and adding a very subtle edge of fruity bitterness to the funky, complex flavour profile.
The Nàdar series of adjunct spontaneous beers, which takes its name from the gaelic word for ‘nature’, will allow us to explore the impact of fruit and hops on our native microflora’s unique peach and apricot flavour profile.
