Wicked Weed Hiver Sommeil is by our estimates, the second release in the “Hiver” line of beers. “Hiver” translates to winter in French.
The December release was a spicy, bourbon barrel-aged dark sour, Hiver Joie. The second release – Wicked Weed Hiver Sommeil (Winter Sleep) is a Belgian-style tripel, brewed with candi sugar and honey. The twist however, is the use of the wild yeast Brettanomyces in the fermentation process.
Hiver Sommeil is reflective of all that we owe to the old world beer styles. This barrel-aged Belgian-style Tripel is brewed with honey and Belgian Candy Sugar and finished with our house Brettanomyces culture. River Sommeil is an offering of gratitude to the rest winter brings. Sleep sweet.
Wicked Weed Hiver Sommeil is a 500 mililiter bottle offering. This release has not yet been announced by the brewery.
