VANCOUVER, BC – A new brewing project dedicated to 100% oak fermented ales has announced details of its first release.
The first release from Temporal is Apparent Horizon, which was brewed using Bohemian Pilsner malt, wheat, rye, and barley, Czech Saaz hops, and a variety of Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus yeast strains.
The result is described as follows:
Apparent Horizon is a blend of 3 different beers that were fermented and aged in a mix of Merlot and Chardonnay barrels. It has a wonderful aroma consisting of tart stone fruit and rustic brettanomyces funk. The flavour follows with bright acidity and notes of plum skins, underripe peach, farmhouse funk, and grassy malt.
Apparent Horizon was previewed on tap at Luppolo last week during a Vancouver Craft Beer Week event, and will soon be available in bottles at Luppolo and other select locations.
