One of Canada’s most respected and prolific craft breweries to pop up in the last decade – Bellwoods continues to impress and amaze anyone who can get their hands on a bottle. It is next to impossible to buy bottles this side of Ontario, you’ll see some kegs at good beer bars from time to time but bottles are few and far between – luckily you’ve got Bishops Cellar!
BLEND OF BARREL AGED WILD ALE
As years passed and the brewery’s oak aged beer became more robust, they discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of their barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as they deem the barrels ripe for the picking.
What it tastes like, what it smells like: Bold, up-front aromas and flavours of dried rose petals, meyer lemon and oak. Nuanced brett characteristics and wild yeast derived flavours play a supporting role, with solid bottle-conditioned carbonation, and a lively body. Delicious, fancy, and so worth enjoying.
