Adem (Witbier), 4.8% abv. This traditional witbier is a passion project for our staff. We collaborated with our friends at Valley Malt (MA) to produce ‘wind’ malt (also known as ‘air-dried’ malt) for Adem–a traditional, very light malt that was historically dried in the lofts of Belgian barns, absent any kiln, and used for witbier production. Notes of orange peel, peppercorns and floral hay meld with the wheat-forward base to provide a taste that hearkens back to witbier’s origins.
Doxology (Belgian-style Quadrupel), 11% abv. Inspired by the legacy of Trappist brewing, Doxology is a complex mahogany-colored beer with a rounded mouthfeel that masks its formidable stature. Layers of figs, plum, and caramelized raisins dominate the flavor spectrum with light warming apparent on the finish. Doxology was crafted using the finest European pilsner malts and candi syrup (traditional to this style), as well as an exceptional monastery yeast strain. This is an ideal beer for aging if that is your preference; however, as with all of our long-term bottled offerings, our intention is to present it for sale at or near the prime of its drinkability. Bottle-conditioned with a flowing cream-colored head.
