The resulting beer will only see the light of day at Savor in Washington D.C. in June. According to the Wall Street Journal the beer has a name – “Savor Flowers” as it’s brewed with dried red & white rose petals, plus 2 other kinds of roses. The hops are experimental, known only by a name “369.” As if the beer needed to be a bit MORE unique, this floral offering is aged in a special whiskey barrel dear to Jim Koch, one he aged a triple bock in back in the ’90s. Food Republic is reporting that Koch also added “a tincture –or extraction – that he [Koch] has nicknamed WTF, which smells and tastes a lot like lavender.” Later, this WTF was revealed to also contain hibiscus & jasmine.
Total production is only 30 barrels, and only the lucky few that got tickets to Savor (before or after the server meltdown) will get to try it. <Food Republic>
