Bellwoods - Motley Cru 2022: Pink Guava (3 Yr. Blend of Spontaneous Coolship Beer w/ Fruit) / 500mL
Bellwoods Brewery (Toronto, ON)
Motley Cru 2022 is a three year blend of spontaneous coolship beer. It was aged in neutral barrels and blended together to taste, with the more mature beer providing classic wild fermentation characteristics and the younger beer exhibiting clean and fruity qualities. Combined, they provide the best of both worlds. In striking Bbellwood's preferred balance between older and newer barrels, they were also striving to create a beer that is simultaneously true to what they do and a nod to what Belgian Lambic breweries have been doing for centuries. Motley Cru 2022 boasts fruity aromas of passion fruit, damp forest floor and subtle oak. Clean pleasant acidity, reminiscent of sweet tart. Notes of green pepper and rhubarb as well. This batch is conditioned on loads of pink guava. Expect bright fruit aromas from a heaping guava addition, as well as passionfruit and wildflower honey. Further notes of melon peel and burnt orange peel build upon the fruity sweet tart notes of the base 3 yr. blend.
