From Four Winds Brewing in Delta comes their “Norwegian Wood Dry Hopped Farmhouse Ale”. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head and a ton of bubbles. The aroma consists of oranges, orange peel, oak, pepper, spices and pineapple. The flavour is of lots of oak, tannins, resin, pepper, citrus rind, mild citrus, pineapple, mango and some bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6.2% with an IBU of 35. This was a really tasty beer and well worth being a 4th Anniversary release. Keep up the great work Four Winds Brewing.
Commercial Description: 4th Anniversary Ale. Norwegian Wood was fermented warm with Kveik (traditional Norwegian farmhouse yeast) in French oak barrels and bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces claussenii. They say that this ale sings brightly with notes of pineapple and citrus, balanced by a pleasing mineral dryness. It was hopped exclusively with Enigma and rounded out by naked golden oats.
