DAWN OF AURORA

BEER STYLE: Berliner Weisse

ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 8%

CHARACTERISTICS: Dawn of Aurora is honey-orange in color with a white foam head. Predominantly fruity notes of pineapple, apricot and pear are accompanied by an intense yet refreshing acidity and sparkling carbonation.

Dawn of Aurora is our interpretation of a Starkbier style Berliner Weisse. These “strong beers” were typically brewed to a much higher strength than a standard Berliner Weisse and then aged for an extended time to allow the flavors to mature.  In this tradition, Dawn of Aurora was brewed with an intense decoction mash schedule and fermented with an authentic mixed culture of yeast, bacteria and brettanomyces.  The beer then underwent a long, slow secondary fermentation in our 1936 cypress wood lagering tank to allow the vibrant fruity flavors and bold acidity to further develop.
