Farmageddon w/ Niagara Montmorency Cherries
A special edition of Bellwoods Farmageddon brett saison, this version was aged on Niagara Montmorency cherries. Combining an already delicious and refined saison with fruit is a no-brainer, but they worked to make sure the balance was just right – neither the beer nor the cherries overpower the other, and together they work in perfect harmony. It’s a brett beer, not a sour, and the fruit is a subtle counterpart to the dry saison. What it smells and tastes like: The beer is lively and effervescent, with soft aromatics of cherry, brett-derived funk, and even subtle cinnamon hearts. The body remains dry despite the fruit, and notes of cider, Belgian yeast, and barnyard round out the flavours. A beautiful and nuanced version of our original Farmageddon, this beer is all about balance, subtlety, and drinkability.

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.
