VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Following on the return earlier this month of Matt’s Sleepy Time Belgian Stout, Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced the revival of another favourite from the Wild Oats Series of one-off and experimental beers.
Wag the Wolf is a weissbeer (wheat beer) that has been generously late-addition-hopped – a brewing technique of adding hops at the end of the boil to benefit mainly from their aroma, while taking away less overall bitterness for the resulting beer’s taste. Made with 65% wheat, and fermented with a traditional hefeweizen yeast, Wag the Wolf is pale gold in colour and hazy. There are notes of banana, clove, papaya, mango and citrus on the nose. The carbonation is lively and the beer is spicy and fruity, with restrained bitterness and a slightly dry finish.
Wag The Wolf and Matt’s Sleepy Time are both available now at select LCBO locations across Ontario, as well as via the Beau’s retail store and BYBO delivery service, with both retailing in all locations for $7.85 per 600 ml bottle.
