Cadaver Synod – Barrel Aged Cherry Oud Bruin

Belgian, Blended, Dark, Fruited


This Flanders-inspired dark sour ale is produced by blending tart beer that has matured slowly over a year in oak followed by a refermentation with local Oyama sour cherries with fresh non-sour beer to temper the acidity and allow the more delicate flavours of the roasted malt and wonderful fruit to shine through. The blend was then allowed to marry for a few weeks in a blending tank before can-conditioning for natural carbonation.

Like all our beers, this beer is 100% produced from grain to glass on-site at our brewery in Kelowna, BC including brewing, barrel aging, fruit refermentation, and 100% natural carbonation in kegs and bottles.

The Story

The Cadaver Synod (the namesake of this beer) was an event in human history both dark and absurd in equal measure involving the exhumation, trial, and sentencing of a corpse – specifically the body of Pope Formosus in the year 897. The presiding cardinals found the corpse guilty of multiple crimes and heaped upon the body a slew of punishments including stripping of the papal vestments and the removal of the three fingers on the right hand used to give blessings. If you have the time and interest, we would definitely say this event has one of the more interesting wikipedia articles out there.
