The GOODS from Four Winds
Delta, BC | The best beers are the ones that take time to make. We’ve been working on our barrel program since day one and every batch that we release gets a little bit better. Our brewers work tirelessly to achieve certain flavour profiles by combining the right ingredients with the right vessels for aging. This is where Bosque comes in. This Farmhouse Ale is complex, yet light and refreshing. But the best part about Bosque is that it will only get better with age. Make room in your cellar.
Bosque is a tart Farmhouse Ale that was aged in a foeder on Spanish cedar and then blended with a tequila-barrel-aged Saison. It was finished on Granny Smith pomace, instilling a complex aroma with a dry, tannic mouthfeel.
SYNOPSIS: A tart Farmhouse Ale with a complex aroma and a dry, tannic mouthfeel.
TASTING NOTES: Notes of spice with an aroma not all that different from a cigar box.
FOOD PAIRINGS: White anchovies, grilled chicken hearts, olives, mussels, calamari, ham croquettes, cured meats, spicy potato omelette.
BREWER’S NOTES: Bosque was originally referred to as “Wood Barrelson” because we found that name very funny. When it came time to package the beer, we decided to name it after the Spanish word for “woods” instead, because the beer turned out to be seriously good.
The fresh pressed Granny Smith pomace was sourced from Nomad Cider in Summerland, BC. We do our best to source as many local ingredients as possible for our beers, unless the recipe calls for specific ingredients that can’t be found in the Pacific Northwest.
