Seems like Founder’s 2009 edition of Nemesis – a maple bourbon barrel aged wheat wine at 12% ABV was just here months ago. Well, last night I heard a rumor (while sitting at a bar, go figure) about 2010 details already surfacing. Finally, a friend of the brewery pointed me over to The Wine and Cheese Place which confirmed the rumors.
Nemesis is different every year. Also from the The Wine and Cheese Place Blog the 2010 Nemesis details –
“The 2010 release of Nemesis is best described by our brewing team as “a dark barley wine that pours black with a subtle mahogany hue. Brewed with 5 malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter booming flavor. Roasty and toasty with a multitude of tastes that melts on your tongue”. — Founders”
So, the follow up to last years wheat wine is a barleywine! I called Founder’s Brewing and they would only disclose it’s shipping first week of September. My mouth is watering.
