I am in drinking Blueberry Super Soak by Trillium Brewing Company, a Regional Brewery in Canton. Blueberry Super Soak is an American Wild Ale, with an ABV of 7.1 and IBU of 0. I gave this beer a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

BREWER’S NOTES

Super Soak: our Soak series amped up with a bigger malt bill, increased ABV, and twice the amount of fruit as Soak. While still sour, the higher ABV in Super Soak serves to moderate the lactic acid formation.

We ferment the base beer with 60% wheat in large oak foeders for several months. Fermentation duties are shared gracefully between our house lactobacillus strain and our Native New England mixed culture. Loosely inspired by the cold-maceration process used in winemaking, we blend fruit directly into the foeders to “soak” for a deep extraction of unique colors, aromatics, and flavors and a refermentation.

Blueberries lend a tart, rich flavor profile, and a deep plum purple hue. The nose teases with aromas of blueberry cobbler, berries, and hints of baking spice. Moderate to heavy acidity is backed up with sweetness from the blueberries and a subtle earthy undertone.

I am in drinking Midnight Bramble (2016) by Cascade Brewing, a Micro Brewery in Portland. Midnight Bramble (2016) is an American Wild Ale, with an ABV of 6.6 and IBU of 0. I gave this beer a 3.75 on Untappd’s 5 point rating system.

BREWER’S NOTES:

Midnight Bramble is a blend of wheat and blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 18 months with black and red raspberries, fresh ginger and thyme. This unique project offers carefully layered flavours of ripe bramble fruit with a refreshing ginger lift and soft notes of lavender and pine. ABV 6.6%

Brewer’s notes

This is a Barrel Aged Wild Ale the we collaborated on with @tavalontea . Each barrel that was blended went through secondary fermentation for up to 2 years in different Oak Barrels. The barrels were then blended with Tavalon’s Ginger & Peach Oolong tea. Afterwards we then bottle conditioned this beer with Champagne yeast and let it referment in the bottles for a month

Brix City Brewing is a brewery based out of Little Ferry N.J. We produce a wide variety of ale and lager style beers as well as focusing on limited release barrel aged specialty beers.
