Just bottled it a few weeks ago, sorry. I thought tour was tower, no?

BTW, I did my best with the recipe. I wasn't intending to blend these two beers, but when I did it turned out so great I wanted to share the recipe. Esentially you just need to blend 3gallons Belgian Strong Dark Ale with 2 gallons of EXTREMELY sour raspberry plambic and make sure you don't get bottle bombs because you bottled before reaching terminal gravity.

This beer sounds great!! I may invest in a oak barrel to age the beer in. Would you age the blended beer in oak or would you age each beer seperately in oak and then blend? Any thoughts?

I'm reading Wild Brews right now and I'm really interested in brewing this ber.
