Warp & Weft is a sour ale that has been aged for a year in tequila barrels. Formerly part of a duo with the Chardonnay barrel-aged Weft & Warp, it is now returning on its own, and is described as follows:
W&W is the product of a mixed fermentation that utilized lactobacillus and saccharomyces, in addition to brett clausenii and lambicus. Pleasingly sour, it was aged in tequila barrels rich with personality for the duration of a year. What has emerged is citrusy and bright, somehow taking on all the complex flavours of tequila without the harsh alcohol heat. Subtle flavours of grapefruit, lime juice, aloe, agave, salt, and honey vie for a background role in this unique and positively delicious brew.
Warp & Weft will be released on Friday July 17th at 11:00 AM exclusively at the Bellwoods retail store (126 Ossington Ave.). The release is limited to just over 2000 bottles, retailing for $12 each with a limit of 4 bottles per person.
