Quadruple X Mild – Kettle River Brewing Co

From Kettle River Brewing in Kelowna comes their first in their Endangered Series of aged beers “Quadruple X Mild” a beer aged in bottles for 6 months.  This beer was bottled on May 25th, 2016 and from lot 19.   The beer pours a deep cloudy amber colour with a small tan head.  The aroma consists of dark fruits, melon and caramel.  The flavour is of dark fruits and red wine (even though its not barrel aged) up front with lots of earth, resin, fruit rind, apple, caramel and bitterness in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% hence the name Quadruple X Mild.  This beer almost reminds me of a sessionable barleywine with its mix of flavours.  This is a great first aged release from a brewery and I look forward to future releases in this series!
