SURREY, BC – Russell Brewing has announced the return of Nectar of the Gods, a barrel-aged wheat wine that quickly sold out its initial release in early 2012.
The 10% abv ale is described as follows:
Matured in Tennessee Whiskey Barrels for over 4 months this Wheat Wine Ale delivers multiple layers of flavour complexity. Comprised of 50% Wheat Malt plus a combination of Pilsner and Munich Malts. Fruity-ester characteristics are beautifully complemented by vanilla-like flavours and tannins imparted from the barrel-aging process. US Columbus Hops provide a firm bitterness and French Strisselspalt Hops present a lusty black currant flavour and balanced finish. Bottle-conditioning results in natural carbonation and sediment – pour gently. Drink now, or cellar for years.
Russell Nectar of the Gods Wheat Wine is available now at select private liquor stores in BC while supplies last.
