Wicked Weed Brewing (Asheville, NC) released the third offering in their “Angels” Series over the weekend.
White Angel follows Wicked Weed Red Angel that kicked off the line, and Golden Angel. The approach to the “Angels’ is to incorporate local fruits with the house wild yeast and bacteria in the barrels in the Funkatorium.
Later this year, a fourth angel will rise from the barrels, Wicked Weed Angel of Darkness. Darkness is a blend of all three previous angels, aged in Oloroso Sherry barrels. The result will be a nearly 13% alcohol by volume sour ale you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Erin Jones, one of Wicked Weed’s best, sits down with Beer Street Journal again on a rainy release day. (She also was at the helm of Funk Asheville the night before, having only just a few hours to sleep before back at it at dawn.) If you ever find yourself having a beer with her, you are having one with one the industry’s most talented women.
The beer sold out in just over an hour.
