Take a Charentes on Me
This amber ale made with Belgian yeast was put into fresh Pineau des Charentes barrels shipped straight from Bordeaux and aged for 14 months. It came out of the barrel at 8.1% ABV and transformed into a light brown beer with ruby highlights. It shows light oxidized notes, akin to a sherry, with aromas and flavours of dried fruit and brown sugar.
Let’s Not Rush
This robust, barrel-aged lager is light gold in color with a slight haze. It has aromas of Red Delicious apple & tangerine with a slight mustiness. It has a bright, cider-like flavour with notes of gooseberry and canned pineapple. LNR has low bitterness, medium carbonation, full body, surprisingly low booziness and a semi-dry finish. We didn’t rush with this beer; it sat in port barrels for two years until we felt it hit its peak. Don’t rush when you drink it; it’s a sipper, not a crusher.
Extra Special Monk Lager
Extra Special Monk Lager is a lagerized version of one of our original ales. It is a pale, hoppy lager with tropical aromas and flavours, subtle malt backbone, low-medium bitterness, and a dry finish.
Mentis Oculi is the second release in the Dry Hop Series. This blend of one and a half year mixed-ferment barrels is a collision of two worlds. Old World Tettnang and New World Simcoe, two wildly different hops, blend delightfully to dry hop this beer. The result is honey floral, ripe papaya, and light menthol hop character balanced by a full, round texture and medium-light acidity. We hope you like it.
Songe d’une Prairie Sauvage
This collaboration with our friends from Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! is a turbid mashed lager, fermented in Spanish red wine barrels then conditioned with Brettanomyces for 8 months. This process results in floral, honey character, with over ripe fruit and light Brettanomyces notes. It picks up subtle wine fruitiness and tannin from the barrels and finishes with a delicate tart acidity.
Uncharted Citra Lager
This assertively bitter lager is straw coloured and lightly hazy. Aromas of grapefruit pith are accentuated by the lingering bitter finish while complemented by flavours of lemon zest and orange. The crisp, dry finish of this lager is sure to quench your thirst even on the hottest day
Fruitful Pursuits: Plum
The Fruitful Pursuits Series is made in late summer when ripe fruit is in season and at peak quality. For 2019 Plum we used hundreds of kilograms of freshly harvested Damson and President Okanagan plums which stayed on this mixed-ferment blend for 2 months. The result is bright ruby-purple colour, very prominent plum character, and a medium-high acidity.
Un Petit Peu
Un Petit Peu (Translation “A Little Bit”) is the first offering in our Dry Hop Series. This blend of one year old mixed-ferment barrels was lightly dry hopped with the French hops Mistral and Barbe Rouge. The unique hops impart red berry aroma and flavor to this bright, light acidity beer. We hope you like it.
Union Bhoys Lager
Union Bhoys Lager was brewed in celebration of the Soccer Team Union St-Gilloise in Brussels, Belgium. This lager was brewed with both wheat and barley, giving it a hazy yellow colour. It has floral and melon fruit aromatics, with clean malt, honey dew, and lychee flavours followed by a dry, lightly bitter finish.
