TORONTO, ON – Bandit Brewery has announced the release of the latest in its Elements series of barrel-aged blended ales.
Elements #4 (5.5% abv) is described as follows:
Elements #4 is a blend of two fairly different beers: a classic Saison aged in wine barrels and a barrel version of our Farmed & Dangerous Saison aged with Brett and Lactobacillus, which provides this beer with its distinct funk. This second barrel’s strong Brett and oak flavours were nicely toned down by the innate sweetness and spice of the Saison yeast, resulting in a smoother and better-balanced beer. Elements #4 has strong aromas of Brett and orange peel, rich flavours of oak and a light hint of blue cheese. It finishes with a moderate dryness and a pleasant smoothness resulting from the bottle conditioning.
Elements #4 is available now in a limited run of 375 ml bottles at the Bandit brewpub, retail shop, and online store.
