The first beer to be offered in the new format is DumDuminator, an 8% doppelweizenbock described as followa:
This brick coloured beer, hazy yet radiant, is topped by a cream infused head. An explosion of banana is amplified by notes of spices and alcohol as it escapes from the glass. The energetic brewer’s yeast does an awesome job of transforming the sugars while leaving a very present trace. On the palate, caramel, alcohol and fruit flavours (banana) blend together in perfect harmony.
The bottled version of DumDuminator is available starting today at the brewpub, and will be officially launched at Salon du Livre de l’Outaiouais, a festival of books and authors taking place in Gatineau on February 24th to 27th.
UPDATE: BDT brewmaster Dominique Gosselin has followed up to let us know that the beer was bottled yesterday, but it will not be released to the public until around March 7th to allow for some bottle fermentation to take place.
