Side Project Merci Batch #4

Bottled !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back in June we did the blending session -  
Merci No.4 has now been bottled!
It will not be bottle conditioning for at least 6 more weeks.  We will announce when we know more.   This is one of our craziest releases of the year!  Very fun and exciting!

Side Project Merci Batch #4
Here was the final blend....if you made it to the blending, hopefully you kept your notes on your own blends.
  • 43.6% of our Foedre Blond (same base as Fuzzy) 5 years of solera method in a french oak foedre
  • 39.8% of #40 - 12 months in french oak puncheons (higher brett phenolics than most Side Project beers)
  • 8.7% of Foedre Terry - 8 months in french oak foedre (high must, funk, slight brine)
  • 7.9% of Oude Fermier - 18 months in french oak
"Went a little more "wild ale" with this blend and tried to express as much Brett as possible" - Cory King, Side Project Brewing on Batch #4

This is the beer that Cory makes specifically for The Wine and Cheese Place.  We are honored to be able to get beer from Side Project and offer it to our loyal customers.   Thank you.
