The “Medieval Raw Ale” is a Belgian Sour Ale style beer with 8.5% ABV. Brewed with the aim of emulating the medieval method where the wort only reached the temperature of 70º avoiding boiling point. It was aged for 6 months in red wine barrels from Alentejo and fermented wildly with Brettanomyces. Finally, a second fermentation in wax sealed bottles. The result is a “Raw” beer with copper tones, easy carbonation, intensely bitter and aromatised with exclusive Pulowski Hops.
This was the first Raw Ale beer style to be commercialised in Portugal.
