Come What May (In Collaboration with De la Senne)
Brewed in collaboration with our friends at De La Senne, Come What May is a crisp, hoppy beer with a stunning, nuanced complexity of flavours. Bellwoods set out to create a saison-like ale, but without the saison yeast, and achieved this through several fermentations (primary with neutral ale yeast, secondary in oak), selective brett inoculation, the use of rustic grains like spelt and rye, and ample time to become its best self. The final beer is refreshing, refined, and perfectly balanced -- a complex beer that's easy to drink.
What it smells like, what it tastes like: Lively aromatics of pineapple, orange zest, peach, and lemongrass with a firm hop bitterness, crisp body, and the most subtle notes of smokey brett.

ABOUT THE BREWERY:
Bellwoods began as a small brewery, and pub in downtown Toronto. They officially opened their doors to the public in April 2012 When it comes to their beers, these have evolved (and will continue to evolve) over time – and it makes sense, because they have travelled, collaborated, and learned a lot since they opened. Bellwoods makes a variety of bright, fresh, hoppy styles ranging from aromatic pale ales, to fruity Double IPAs. Their enthusiasm for Imperial Stouts is undeniable, and recreating their big releases each year like Bring Out Your Dead, Skeleton Key, or 3 Minutes to Midnight, is always a fun challenge. An additional area of focus is in the production of farmhouse and/or wild ales.
