(San Diego, CA) – AleSmith Brewing Co. has announced the release of its 2014 edition of Decadence® Anniversary Ale, a Wheat Wine. Now available at the brewery, expect to find it out in the market soon. More below from the latest email newsletter…
This year AleSmith decided to take a fresh crack at an obscure style of beer. First originating in the United States back in the 80’s, the wheat wine combines the best of two worlds (barleywine and wheat ale).
Bottle Description: AleSmith Decadence® Anniversary Ale was originally brewed in 2005 to celebrate our first decade in business. Our brewers had such a great time creating it that they decided to brew a new style each year to commemorate our Anniversary.
Now, nineteen years after we started, we’re proud to present another great addition to this ongoing series, AleSmith Decadence 2014® is our interpretation of a wheat wine-style ale. The generous amounts of wheat used in this beer impart a bready aroma with hints of honey, ripe fruit, and a spicy graininess. In the finish, a pleasant malty sweetness from the wheat is balanced by the addition of German and American hops. Enjoy this special brew now or age at a cool temperature for a truly rewarding experience.
This tenth edition of our Decadence Series is now pouring and bottles will be available to purchase in the AleSmith Tasting Room starting Wednesday, August 6th.
