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.
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.
