Merit - By & By (Meritage Tripel w. Pinot Noir & Cab Franc) / 500mL
Merit Brewing Co. (Hamilton, ON)
For this year's rendition of By & By, Merit used a beautiful melange of freshly pressed Pinot Noir skins from Rosewood Estates and Cab Franc from Fielding Estates! The skins bring notes of creamy strawberry, tart cherry, raspberry and currant to a classic Belgian-style Tripel base. By And By drinks like a Beaujolais-beer with major fruit balanced by subtle acidity and tannin. A true hybrid.
