VANCOUVER, BC – Parallel 49 Brewing has announced details of two new releases in its series of limited edition barrel-aged beers.
Blueshift (7% abv) is a blueberry sour ale with the following notes:
It’s been a long return for our 2017 mixed-culture pale sour that spent nearly a year in French Oak barrels before being blended and racked on whole blueberries from Washington State and aged for another two months. Red-violet in the glass with light pink foam and medium clarity. Intense blueberry aroma matched with an assertively tart nose. Dominant berry-flesh, oaky tannins and puckering berry skins are followed with spice, wine grape, jolly ranchers, and a lingering acidic finish.
Cherry Refraction (7.5% abv) is a wild farmhouse ale with cherries described as follows:
Like the refraction of light through a prism, we’ve changed the wavelength of this beer through the addition of second-use fruit. The first beer in our Refraction series is a French oak barrel-aged, mixed culture saison, conditioned on Lapin cherries from our Late Bloomer Cherry Sour. This tart saison has delicate cherry notes with hints of vanilla and almond, and a soft lactic flavour with earthy funk.
Both beers will be released tomorrow (June 1st) in 500 ml bottles exclusively at the Parallel 49 retail store and tasting room. Previous barrel-aged series beers Late Bloomer Cherry Sour and Fabulous Friends Brett Farmhouse Ale will also be available once again.
