Barn Owl (No. 11) | Bellwoods Brewery
Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison
Description: As years passed and our oak aged beer became more robust, we discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking. No. 11 is not a sour like many of our past releases, but rather a farmhouse blend showcasing a complementary balance of soft saison notes with floral lavender aromatics. Gentle on the palate, with a subtle spicy finish, this is a refined libation to remind us that spring is a state of mind.
