Ravens Brewing Company in Abbotsford has released two versions of their award winning Farmers Ale, aged in wine barrels.  Wing was aged four months in Chardonnay barrels with sun-ripened peaches.  The beer pours a cloudy straw colour with one finger of white head that lingers, leaving no lacing on the glass.  The initial aroma is of lemons and peaches, followed quickly by notes of hay, green grapes and fresh herbs.  In the mouth, Wing offers flavours of yeast and hay, accompanied by stone fruits, citrus and cereal grains.  The beer has a creamy, almost buttery mouthfeel with a slight tartness and a mildly dry finish.  Similar to its sister beer Skull, as part of the first release in Ravens Brewing’s new barrel program, this beer portends good things to come.

Alcohol – 6.5%
Size – 750mL
