OUR LATEST 4SEASONS JUST DROPPED LAST WEEK, and it's a head turning ode to winter decadence just in time for the New Year.
Winter ’21, a bourbon barrel-aged spiced plum winter ale, isn’t just a mouthful to pronounce. It possesses a similar base blend as its series’ predecessor, Autumn ’21, using an English Old Ale with deep mahogany tones that develops a purplish hue thanks to the addition of plum and blueberry puree, as well as seasonal spices, like cinnamon & nutmeg.
“The goal with this vintage was to create something that wasn’t just compelling within the series but also something we could look back on and say, wow… we’re really proud of how we closed out 2021. The amount of color we picked up from the fruit puree was really a pleasant surprise and the seasonal spices add an aromatic component that further augment the beer’s appearance.”
-Christopher Baker - Director of Brewing Operations, Mother Earth Brew Co.
Tasting the beer is a sensory experience the starts with deep brownish reds in the body and an almost-plum head. As you approach the glass the aroma immediately takes on baking spices. Finally the palate is heavy with a lasting impression.
