City and Colour Imperial Maple Wheat is a described as “a sultry, thick, high-alcohol Imperial Maple Wheat Ale brewed with maple syrup and infused with fair-trade, organic Bourbon vanilla pods chiming in at 11.5% abv.”
The beer will make its debut at Session Toronto, a beer festival taking place on June 22nd at the close of Ontario Craft Beer Week. It will be one of the beers being poured in the Collaboration Nation area, which will feature beers created by 20 different Ontario breweries in collaboration with artists and personalities from across Ontario.
Following its premiere at Session, City and Colour Imperial Maple Wheat will be released in a limited run of 750 ml bottles packaged in illustrated gift boxes. It will be available at select LCBO outlets in Ontario, and will also be distributed in Western Canada by 49th Parallel Group.
- Greg C. is drinking a Space Invader by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at The GarrisonLate check-in from the other night. Great beer as always. Amused when the wrapper peeled off & it was a Radler can underneath.
- Greg C. is drinking a Pilsner by Mill Street Brewery at Mill St. Brew PubPerfectly acceptable Pils. Front end sweetness lingers a bit too long, but hops eventually cut through for a good herbal finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Wizard Wolf (Mosaic) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinMostly wipes the memory of the awful Simcoe/Mosaic version. Less hazy, more carbonation, and better balance. This is more like it.
- Greg C. is drinking a Half Way IPA - Across the Nation by Central City Brewers + Distillers at King & DufferinLacks the hazy appearance & lemony tang usually found in the style, but the wheat adds some lightness to this balanced old school IPA.
