Bière de Nöel | 2023

Bière de Nöel | 2023

Spontaneous

Bière de Nöel | Winter 2023 is a special three-year Congac-aged Spontaneous Blend. ⁣ ⁣ The oldest component of this special blend was from a wheat-heavy batch brewed during our Spring 2018 season that was fermented in a 600L Pineau des Charentes cask. ⁣ ⁣ The two-year component was from a traditional mash brew during the Spring of 2020 that was fermented in a 600L Cognac cask, while the youngest of the three was brewed with New Jersey Blueberry Blossom Honey during our Fall of 2020 brew season and fermented in a 450L Pineau des Charentes cask.⁣ ⁣ The blend of these three spontaneous beers, using all New Jersey grown malts and some honey, was laid to rest in a Cognac cask for seven months prior to bottling. ⁣ ⁣ In March 2022, we blended back a small portion of young spontaneous beer and bottled. Bière de Nöel had an average age of 23 months at bottling. ⁣ ⁣ After conditioning for around 20 months, today we are releasing Bière de Nöel | Winter 2023 at the tasting room @kanebrewing in time for sharing with friends and family during the holiday season. ⁣ ⁣ This blend pours with a highly carbonated mousse-like foam head with a burnt golden orange color.⁣ ⁣ It features a balanced and soft profile combining notes of orange citrus, candied fruit, apricot, and light cherry/almond rounded out by subtle Cognac barrel caramelized fruitiness and soft acidity. ⁣ ⁣ Bière de Nöel | Winter 2023 a perfect and bright pairing for a winter holiday enjoyment.⁣
