    A long time ago it was common belief that Dryads inhabited Oak trees. Generally benevolent, these spirits were often summoned for protection with a knock upon the tree. If tempting fate, one also knocked on wood to scare off any spiteful spirits who might bring an unlucky outcome. Foudre-aged for over a year plus 6 months in French red wine barrels, this richly flavourful and balanced tart beer is infused with plenty of oaken spirit should you need a little luck on your side.

    The second release in a series of 3 sour beers from our oak Foudre, Habitude is a richly flavourful and balanced tart beer aged over a year in our 6000L oak foudre and subsequently 6 months in French oak wine barrels. Despite the absence of any berry or fruit it has a subtle cherry like flavour and rich fruitiness. Softly sweet up front it evaporates on the pallet with a delicate alcoholic heat that yields to a tart finish.
