Coal Harbour Brewing in Vancouver BC has released two special new seasonal: Triticale Super Saison and Barrel-Aged Cherry + Vanilla Barley Wine.
Both beers are available now at the Coal Harbour tasting room and will be shipping to select private liquor stores over the next week.
Triticale Super Saison
First bred during the late 19th century in Scotland and Germany, Triticale is a hybrid of wheat (Triticum) and rye (Secale), which adds a delicate note of spice and a fuller, richer body to this Saison. Lemon peel, Szechuan Peppercorns and a touch of Blackberry make for a complex brew, while the yeast adds a refreshing tartness with aromatic esters.
A portion of the beer has also been placed in barrels to age till next year.
7.4% ABV | 21 IBUs
Barrel-Aged Cherry + Vanilla Barley Wine
Brewed over a year ago, this Barley Wine has been aging on cherries and vanilla inside Okanagan red wine barrels. It pours a bright crimson with the oak, vanilla, and cherries blending seamlessly. Unlike most English varieties, this barley wine is light, creamy and very drinkable despite its high ABV.
