TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced full details for this year’s edition of its annual anniversary beer.
Motley Cru 2019 (8.5% abv) is described as follows:
An ode to natural wines, this anniversary release utilizes Cab Franc grapes from Rosewood Estates Winery that were lightly pressed in the making of their rosé, and several barrels of our spontaneous and wild ales. We fermented the eclectic blend on grape skins for 5 weeks, carefully aged it in oak for a year, before allowing it to condition naturally in the bottle. The beer that flows from these bottles today is absurdly good, with rich tannins, restrained acidity to showcase the grapes, great textural complexity, and a striking berry hue. The sensory notes encompass everything from black tea, rosemary, subtle tobacco, and earth, to jammy raspberrry, currants, stewed strawberries, and pomegranate.
Motley Cru 2019 will go on sale Saturday June 8th at both Bellwoods retail stores, with approximately 2000 bottles available. Pricing and purchase limits will be confirmed closer to the release date.
