Stillwell - Leon (Farmhouse ale w/ Leon Millot & Muscat grapes) / 750mL
Stillwell Brewing Co. (Halifax, NS)
Leon is a grapeyboi that was made with Léon Millot and NY Muscat grapeskins, both from Blomidon Estate Winery. Stillwell selected 3 neutral ex-wine barrels to age on a metric frig-ton of pomace, let it macerate for about 5 months, tasted it, then blended some fresh saison with it to get it where they fancied. It's not particularly sour, like many grape ales, and is just under 5%-- for maximum quaff-factor. Dry, aromatic, complex... and drinkable.
