This brew was lovingly hand-crafted with 2,000 fresh cut tulips from the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival. Upfront is a clean, crisp ale with the tulips adding to an incredibly refreshing finish AND an incredible colour. The beer is blue! Yes, you read that right, the beer is blue!! Even cooler than that, if you add a slice of lemon to your brew, it turns purple. Whaaaaaaaat!

ABV: 4.5%

Hops: Yellow Sub, Azacca (relatively new hop varieties!)

Malt: BC Pale, Wheat, Wheat Flakes

 

This tasty NEW brew will be available in tall can 4-packs (473ml) at the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival on Fridays, Saturdays + Sundays, starting TODAY and of course in the Old Yale tasting room. This is a limited release, so make sure you get it while it lasts!!

NEW BREW: Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour

Our newest Trailblazer Beer: Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour is now available!

Our Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour is the newest sour style to hit our single batch limited release Trailblazer Series. Last Spring, we released our unique Fresh Hop Sour Weiss and this past fall, we played around with darker sours with the release of our Kettle Plum Sour Porter. What can we say, at Old Yale, we just love Sours!! With Spring on the horizon, it felt like the perfect time to launch our new Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour.

 

ABV: 5.5%

Hops: Mosiac, El Dorado

Malt: Pale, Wheat

 

The Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour is refreshing and tart. Wheat softens the mouthfeel, and lactobacillus, pitched straight into the kettle gives the Sour a refreshing tang. A huge addition of Mosaic hops burst out of the brew, making it a delicious sour fruit bomb that you won’t want to miss out on.

The Juicy Tropical Hopped Sour joins our Trailblazer Series; a single batch limited release line that is here today, gone forever (once we sell out of our first and only batch). You can find this new brew NOW, for a limited time in the tasting room (in flights, pours, growler fills and 650 ml. bottles) and in select Private Liquor stores, restaurants and bars.

Cheers friends!
