Category 12 Releases Wild Saison & Anomaly Barrel Aged Belgian Ale

VICTORIA, BC – Category 12 Brewing has announced details of the latest in its Elemental Series of experimental and innovative beers, as well as a new edition of a release from its Barrelholder program of strong barrel-aged beers.

Wild Saison (5.3% abv) is the latest Elemental release, and is described as follows:

This harvest-driven farmhouse ale captures the fleeting ripeness of local Gobind Farms loganberries, marrying the delicate aromatic esters and spice of a mixed Brettanomyces fermentation to produce a dry, complex, and approachable ale. Perfect for converting any remaining wine lovers in your life.

Anomaly (8.9% abv) is a bourbon barrel aged Belgian-style ale with the following notes:

A delicious deviation from the norm: reminiscent of a Belgian Quadrupel, yet distinctly Category 12. Our 2017 release of Anomaly was aged in Woodinville Whiskey American Oak bourbon barrels for 10 months. The assertive bourbon character is tempered by notes of dark fruit, sweet vanilla, and coffee. Hints of candied sugar and clove peek through toasted malts in this lovingly blended Barrelholder release.

Both beers are available now – Wild Saison in 750 ml bottles. Anomaly in 650 ml bottles – at the Category 12 retail shop and select private liquor stores throughout BC
