Siren Maiden Barleywine 2020/2021 375ml Finchampstead
Maiden was the first beer ever brewed at Siren and is the first new batch brewed each year, an anniversary Barleywine. Aged in a variety of spirit and wine barrels, before being blended back together with a percentage of fresh beer, to create that yearÕs vintage. The barrels that have been used are left with 10% aged beer in them before being topped up with fresh Maiden, in what is a form of the Solera system. This means every vintage can be a totally different creation, despite coming from the exact same base. This is the 2021 release, spiritous and mealy with masses of salted caramel, molasses and madeira-soaked bread pudding.
