Top fermented beer which undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle. It is intense gold, almost orange in color, with aromas of fruit in syrup (pineapple, peach and apricot), candy sugar, bread crust and a note of chives from the Belgian hops of Poperinge. Warm and sweet on the palate with a firm fizzy finish. Strong and structured, sweet and inviting. A tribute to a friend who went missing, who we may meet again one day, just like the sun that is hiding behind the hill.

Winterlude is also named after a Bob Dylan song, a perfect fit since it is a winter warmer. The idea of winter as an interlude representing both the pause before awakening and the oblivion before new life.
This beer is inspired by some varieties of the Belgian Tripels. The hops come from the Poperinge region, a variety I have always been fascinated by. I connected with one of the regions local farmer and had him set a preferred variety aside from his most recent harvest.
Because it combines incredibly well with food, Winterlude has always made us proud with our catering industry clients.

Colore ambrato..aroma di frutta tropicale e di crosta di pane arrostito. Carbonazione forse un poco eccessiva che non facilita la beva. Senzazione diffusa di calore dovuto allalto grado alcolico.

Tognetta (951) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 16, 2016
Alaranjada opaca, espuma amarela de boa formao e persistncia, aspecto cremoso, perfeita para o estilo. Aroma caramelado, fermento belga, lcool perceptvel, frutas amarelas maduras (misto de dulor e azedume). Paladar de mdio dulor, quase sem amargor, abacaxi, laranja. Corpo mdio, baixa carbonatao. Aftertaste alcolico, pssego maduro, dulor persistente e bem equilibrado, mas um leve aguado ao final, diferente das melhores tripel belgas.

Bortiglia da 33cl...di un colore ambrato scuro abbastanza torbido...schiuma bella pomposa ma poco persistente...buon profumo rinfrescante ma, quando si assaggia, si sente lalta gradazione, ci nonostanta piacevole al palato...
