Pennon Blonde Wyld Ale Release

Pennon

Our second release from The Cove, Pennon Blonde Wyld Ale, comes this Friday. 

First fermented in stainless steel in February of 2016, Pennon was passed to neutral red wine barrels that were separately inoculated with different wild yeast and bacteria. Barrels were chosen a year later and then blended and packaged to undergo a final fermentation in the bottle. 

Pennon is blonde in color with a flavor profile composed of full-bodied lactic acidity, notes of lemon, white grape, and an over all floral experience. 

DETAILS:

  • release: 6/9/17, 11am at our shop on Lincoln
  • $18.99 / 750ml bottle - limit 6 per person
