Seasonal Release Beers Available at the Wild Rose Taproom and Around Town
We love great beer and we love creating new recipes. In fact, we've even developed a way to share these new brews with everyone. The result is our Seasonal Release Program where every other month (or so) we brew up our hand-crafted beers and make them available until they run out.
CHERRY PORTER - Available Now!
Porter Style Strong Ale
Brewed using only the plumpest, ripest whole B.C. cherries, each glass of Cherry Porter is lush and creamy with a fruity aroma.
Rich and sensual, the flavour is reminiscent of Black Forest cake with sweet chocolate notes and a slightly smoky character from the roasted malts.
WHITE SHADOW (August - October '13)
An amalgamation of two great styles, White Shadow combines the refreshing spiciness of a Belgian style wheat beer with the bold hoppiness of a North American IPA. Brewed with Pilsner malt, wheat malt and oats and spiced with sweet orange peel, coriander and chamomile. A serious charge of Cascade and Columbus hops gives the beer a nice citrusy bitterness. Finally a Belgian yeast strain is left unfiltered to lend notes of clove and bitter fruit.
GOSE RIDER (June - August '13)
GOSE STYLE BEER
This irresistibly refreshing ale is brewed with wheat and barley malt, Saaz hops, coriander and salt. Pale gold, and unfiltered, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasing sourness.
NATURAL BORN KELLER (March - May '13)
CALIFORNIA STYLE KELLER BOCK
Wild Rose Natural Born Keller combines California Common, Keller Bier and Bock styles to create one unique beer. Our goal was to create a strong lager beer that was crisp yet bold flavoured.
This unfiltered, copper-coloured ale combines new world innovation with old world brewing tradition. Our California Style Keller Bock puts a unique twist on the Bock style of beer and combines the crispness of a lager with the bold taste of an ale. Malty, medium bodied and briskly hopped, this beer is truly an original.
Wild Rose HOPTIMAL Imperial I.P.A.
(Jan - March'13)
Wild Rose Brewery’s Imperial India Pale Ale (IIPA) has everything you love about our regular I.P.A. plus a whole lot more. Extra malt and added hops produce an exceptional ale, robust and malty with a powerful hop flavour.
Extremely hoppy with huge floral notes of pine and citrus, this unfiltered ale expertly blends Summit, Newport, Cascade & Columbus hops with the finest Alberta two-row barley and crystal malts. The result is a beer with sweet caramel notes balanced by an intense grapefruit taste. Full of flavour this is the Hoptimal ale to enjoy on cold Alberta winter days.
