HORACE | WILD SOUR WITH PLUMS
2020 FOUDRE SERIES
Fear not how many days remain,
though prophets may not say the same.
Better to seize each day as it comes,
live in the moment and eat ripe plums.
The sun will shine, the rain will fall,
the fruit will spoil – can’t have it all!
Waste time no more with useless blather,
best do something that you’d rather.
This day is prime – it you should pluck,
tomorrow you could be out of luck!
… words of wisdom to ponder alongside a glass of this foudre-aged softly sour beer with deep fruity character.

CHARACTER Deeply fruity / Softly sour
