Spring 2019 Collection

2019 Tasting Note: Rich chocolate malt notes, with a touch of burnt caramel and leathery funk, underpinning smooth oak flavours and a splash of tart cherry juiciness to lift the finish.

2020 Tasting Note: Nose is a old leather and silage, with a hint of sweet red fruit. Brett has thinned out the body, but some caramel malt lingers at the top before a white-pepper and oaky tannin note forces through. The finish offers the faintest wash of cherry brightness.

Fossick is Origins Brewing's first dark sour, beginning life as a rich, traditional Scottish-style dark ale, primary fermented with our house Saccharomyces ale yeast, before being racked into oak barrels with a brett-forward mixed culture and whole sour cherries where it refermented and rested for sixteen months before bottling.
