Gloed


The story of Gloed

 

Barrel-aged wild ale with 330g/L local cherries and blackcurrants

Clear

Gloed refers to the bright red colour of this beer, which is the colour of blushing cheeks, the sunset, or hot coal in a campfire. Gloed is connected to joy and passion, all things that are beautiful and add glow to our lives.

Gloed is a fruity and mildly tart beer, light and sessionable, with predominantly blackcurrant in the nose. It was aged on oak barrels for 14 months, after which it spent another 4 months on the whole fruit. For this version we have used the highest fruit concentration so far: 330 g/L. The finish is subtle with light notes of vanilla and cinnamon. Gloed is an elegant, sunny beer that deserves to be enjoyed at a quiet pace. The cherries come from Zalig fruit Zoelen, an organic fruit grower in the Betuwe. The blackcurrants come from serveral local growlers.
