Rose Rhus - Merlot Ale with Sumac
5.5% / 0 IBU
A beautiful and brilliantly pink Rosé, this beer wine hybrid was an experimental ale we brewed with our friends at Malivoire Winery in Niagara Ontario. We took our wort and fermented it in our stainless tanks directly on a half a ton of fresh merlot grapes. Through a process called carbonic maceration, the beer naturally fermented with yeast present on the grapes. What we were left with was a prime example of a true beer/wine hybrid. Rosè in colour, with delicious aromas and flavours of grapes and red fruit. And just to top it all off we added locally foraged and processed sumac to add a gentle tartness to the beer. A wonderful summer beer.

Sam's Take On: Other People's Words
I’m so very excited about this beer. We’ve worked with Malivoire in the past and had great success, but this one is my favourite so far. The blending of two worlds combines to create one fantastic beer. From the beautiful colour, to the vibrant aromas and delicate fruit flavours of this beer, it’s just fantastic and I can’t wait for y’all to try. We bottle conditioned this back in January and have been aging it to perfection, anxiously awaiting its release.
