Dunham Berliner Passion Weisse (750ml)

Located in the small country town of Dunham, Quebec, about thirty minutes from the Vermont border, is Brasserie Dunham. Brewmaster Eloi Deit, formerly of Quebec’s famous Le Cheval Blanc, took over the struggling little brewpub as a temporary moonlighting gig. Before he knew it, he had cleaned house, ditched the recipes, and when the sun came up, he had created something truly special.
These days, Brasserie Dunham is known for a wide variety of beers, but especially their saisons and barrel aged beers. Surrounded by fruit farmers, honey producers, cideries, and wineries, Eloi’s geography is not unlike Hill Farmstead, and the effect it has on his mindset as a brewer is similarly nuanced. Beautiful, fluffy, balanced beers that are bright and full of flavor.
The nose is a passion fruit bomb, throwing out juicy and acidic aromatics, on the palate it’s extremely acidic, but with a massive juiciness from the fruit that helps balance everything. The passion fruit is incredibly apparent, more than all the other fruit variants. It’s not for the faint of heart, as the acidity is through the roof. Be prepared!
This is the fifth installment from the Dunham’s Berliner Weisse series. This particular iteration was brewed using passion fruit.
