VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing has announced the annual return of a popular installment in the Wild Oats Series of 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.
