Origins Brewing - Habitual
Vegetarian | Vegan
Habitual began life a strong Belgian-style tripel, brewed using Maris Otter, Crystal and amber malts and French saison yeast, a portion of which was reserved into French red wine barrels for eleven months. During that time, the base beer's sweet, dessert wine character greatly enhanced, due to the influence of the wood and oxidation - it emerged intensely rich and indulgent with the caramel malt backbone still present under the deep, fruity, vinous notes. To lift the beer's flavour profile, it was blended with a small portion of kettle-soured wheat beer and transferred into a secondary vessel loaded with apricots where it was aged before bottling in early 2018.
