VANCOUVER, BC – Powell Brewery has announced release details for two limited edition beers, including a Japanese-inspired lager, and a new barrel-aged ale.
Rising Sun (4.8% abv, 8 IBU) is described as follows:
This Jasmine Black Rice Lager with Yuzu Citrus was brewed in collaboration with our dear friend Todd Graham of Handtaste Ferments. Originally concocted for a “This Sandwich That Beer” challenge two years ago, we decided to get back together and brew a full size batch. The Jasmine Black Rice adds subtle flower aromas and a clean crisp flavour, while the Yuzu bring forward strong citrus characters reminiscent to lemon, grapefruit, and orange.
La Belle (8.3% abv) has the following notes:
A Wild Farmhouse Ale aged for 18 months in a mix of Gin and Wine Barrels. A pleasant Gin aroma and wild yeast character is complemented by an upfront sourness followed by flavours of bright stone fruit, melon, spice, and oak.
Both beers will be launched tomorrow (May 11th) at 12:00 noon in the Powell tasting room and retail store. Cans of Rising Sun and bottles of La Belle will also be on the shelves at select private liquor stores in the area starting next week.
