Almost each year we bring out a new vintage. This year we took a different approach on making Druif. We started with a blend of older beers (approximately 2 years in the barrel) refermented with Kékfrankos grapes, and aged in our oldest foudre for quite some time. Before bottling we blended this base with spontaneously fermented wine from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes we made in 2018 and aged in smaller burgundy barrels.
Druif 2020 has elderflower, blackberry, and light strawberry notes, but also a touch of creamy oak, and a little earthiness. Taste-wise it has a really balanced wine-like acidity, proper fruitiness, and plenty of spice/earthiness with a little funk to it. Together with firm but rounded tannins, some minerality, it’s a very vibrant wild ale. Tommie’s favourite vintage so far.
At this moment the balance between the base beer and the fruit is perfect, but especially this vintage has good potential for ageing in the bottle. In a year or more, the tannins will soften, and the base beer and the barrel’s taste will integrate even better.
Store our beers upright or lying down in a cool, dark place. Our beers are best enjoyed between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius.

Ingredients: water, organic malted barley, organic wheat, organic hops, organic red grapes (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kékfrankos), wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria.
