Are you looking for a great Summer beer? Well, look no further as Wellington Brewery has released 3 Weeks Notice, a Pomegranate Witbier that clocks in at a easy-drinking 5% ABV. Wellington Brewery has released this earlier this Summer but they found that it was over carbonated and recalled that batch. Ironically, they said that the next batch would be 3 weeks later…
The design of the can is a very Summer-like, with leaves of blues, purples, pinks on a white background.
Out of the tallboy pours a unfiltered body of deep orange with a foamy white head that settled down to a thin layer. The aroma is of cloves and grains with very faint notes of fruit. With that first sip, you get notes of a simple Witbier, spices, cloves, that Belgian yeast. It’s a smooth mouthfeel with a bit of a dry finish. There’s notes of fruits, not really picking up the Pomegranate though (Which may be a good thing because, well not everybody wants an overwhelming fruit beer.)
3 Weeks Notice screams “Summer” to me, it’s smooth, it’s refreshing, and enjoyable. If you’re a fan of Wheat beers in general, well, this one will be right up your alley.
Speaking of Wellington Brewery, they’re hosting their 3rd Annual Cask Fest, which it’s a lot of fun. I attended the first one and made plans to attend the the second event (which I couldn’t because of the Cochlear Implant surgery.)
However, you will find me at the Welly Cask Fest that’s happening on September 7th and 8th. There will be 3 sessions to attend, one on Friday (6-11pm) and two on Saturday (12-5pm and 6-11pm). Tickets are only $25 (plus HST and Service Charge) – there are also shuttle buses happening as well for Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo (Only Session 3) and Toronto (Again, only for Session 3).
For more information on this awesome event, check out www.wellycaskfest.com.
I will be there… (Session 2!)
