Wicked Weed Montmaretto takes leave of the brewery’s Canvas Series and returns as one of the brewery’s flagship beers this month.
In case the name was not suggestive enough, Wicked Weed Montmaretto boasts a favor reminiscent of amaretto – the Italian liqueur. The name is actually Italian for “a little bitter,” making a sour ale with almonds and cherries even more genius.
Montmaretto is aged in neutral wine barrels (barrels that have been used to the point where they are basically just oak vessels that don’t impart an flavor), when a secondary fermentation takes place on cherries. The beer is blended with beer aged on almonds, where a balance is struck for the final beer.
Wicked Weed Montmaretto is a 16.9 ounce bottle offering. The beer dons amazing new artwork, seen above.
