Tomorrow, November 5th, Flying Dog releases the latest Brewhouse Rarities offering. Vineyard Blonde, a collaboration with Breaux Vineyards. The beer combines the base recipe of a blonde with grape juice, Belgian and champagne yeasts. Draft only offering.
The combination of a Belgian yeast and Vidal Blanc grape juice (from Breaux Vineyards in Purcellville, Virginia) creates a fruity and floral nose with hints of honey, banana and pineapple. Those notes continue in the flavor profile, along with melon, citrus, and malty sweetness. The addition of a champagne yeast during fermentation makes our Vineyard Blonde finish dry and spritzy.
